3rd location of the July trip with Darbians, was this lovely old Industrial Wool Mill in deep Belgium. Arriving reasonably early, we were given an access route which seemed very high and dangerous and the worker of a nearby store was lurkign around outside keeping an eye on us, we decided to find a different route.

A much easier and sensible route was found but we didn't go for an easy climb into the mill, no we clambered up a crumbling wall into a high window and onto a conveyor belt about 10ft of the ground (the exit was much easier)

Wandering around taking a a lot of lovely photos, we had pretty much finished, but there was still the first floor area where all the old wool machines were stored (by a local museum), all access had been blocked off. Finding a rickety old ladder we climbed around a welded mesh grating, not the easiest, but definitely worth it!!

It was so hot in this place, when we left, it was 40c! Not the best of weathers to be exploring about in! Enough of my gibberish, on with the pics!

A lot of people post the faces of the furnaces here, but that wasn't the best part from the location the old steam engine and pump rooms were just stunning!

Onto the first floor, we were not running late for meeting Valsdarkroom at a different derp, but we had to find access to the upper level, so glad we managed.

There were so many machines crammed in up there, it was hard but so tempting to take photos of everything, but maybe next time as a re-visit is on the cards for the future!

Thanks for looking!

So I see you made the dangerous climb to the top floor as well, at least I assume the cage was still above the stairs? Nuts haha! I love your point of view on it tho', nice photo's!

Yeah the cage was above the stairs, left the ladder not too far away ;)

Really like that Tachymeter dial shot, seen lots from here but these have to be the best I've seen. Really nice set of pics (y)
