  1. A trip through an abandoned pig slaughterhouse. Here you can follow the last path of a pig. 1 round them up IMG_1974-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 dead pig walking IMG_1990-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 shocking IMG_1994-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 beginning of processing IMG_1929-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 5 cleaning IMG_1922-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 6 hair trim IMG_1927-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 7 hair removing IMG_1973 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 8 waist disposal IMG_1967-Edit-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 9 chop them up IMG_1915-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 10 piece by piece IMG_1920-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 11 meat chain IMG_1961-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 12 to the freezer IMG_1938-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr
  2. Thanks you all for the many replies. The slaughterhouse was still reasonable clean then. Now it's a bit more trashed and some art graffiti has been sprayed there. I was lucky with the light that day.
  3. A explore of an old slate mine. The mining started a few hundred years ago but is abandoned for several decades. This mine is not the safest and some parts are already collapsed. All the train rails are gone but you can see where they were. Only some bats live in these parts now. The white dots on the walls are all dead spiders with a layer of calcium. Not sure why there were so much dead spiders there. The person with whom I exploring with had done the research of this mine. You had to walk some distance through the woods to get to the entrance. . There was yet another level but we couldn't make a safe connection point for a rope so we skipped that. It was a steep incline 10 meters down. 1 all the white dots are dead spiders.

  4. A smal disused pump station.Those valves in the pitch-black basement ate quite large. Some indicators were still indicating and some control lights were still lit. Didn't stay here to long because of an irritating noise 🙂 1 I am in control IMG_4241-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 water at 3m ? check IMG_4249-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 some large water tube IMG_4234-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 more big piping IMG_4235-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr
  5. The above ground part of an old slate mine. This one was quite deep but unfortunately totally flooded now. This one is in the centre of a small village so care needed to be taken not to bee seen. There is also the administrative building but that one seems to get renovated,hence the new coat of paint. Also the camera on the side was a good indication. The slate and the miners went down on the same structure. Not sure what the future will bring for this one. Most likely demolishing. 1 IMG_3749-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 IMG_3784-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 IMG_3777-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 IMG_3770-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 5 IMG_3759-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 6 IMG_3736-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 7 IMG_3721-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 8 IMG_3724 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 9IMG_3743 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 10 IMG_3742-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr
  6. Thanks. The metal thieves didn't took a lot of metal yet. The offices were a bit thrashed.Someone told me that this environment was not to healthy,even without the pigs. But you could nicely follow the path of were some of our meat is coming from.
  7. It sure was. Makes you think about the men who had to work there.
  8. I don't do often small houses but due to my interest in radio,was this a nice location. It's been abandoned for several years. There is a big collection of radio's there with some that deserve a restoration. The house next to it is not abandoned and the neighbours were at home so i could here some noises .So being quite and not making to much noise was needed. 1 like sprewells on a wheelchair IMG_3879-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 are you lonesome tonight IMG_3894-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 lucid dreams IMG_3834-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 video killed the radio star IMG_3827 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 5 the white shoes IMG_3862-HDR by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 6 birdcage IMG_3846-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 7 I can't live in a living room IMG_3873-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr
  9. Thanks for the responses .I do appreciate it. I hope he doesn't live next door then. But luckily no encounters that day.
  10. thanks guys, I do appreciate the comments It was a shame that the underground was flooded but the upper part was well worth visiting. .
  11. TNX. There are indeedsome nice radio's (begin 1950) thatare worth restoring. And I also heard the stories about the neighbours so i needed to be as quite as possible and try not to bump my tripod or let the stairs make to much noise.
  12. A n abandoned hospital that did not meet the new norms. It took some effort to gain access to this one. I did this one alone so my senses were working overtime. First thing I heard was the tik tak of some mechanical clocks so i named this one l'hopital tiktak. Electricity is still on, sensors of the automatic doors and lights still working. Went to a great part of this massive hospital but still not seen everything because I was expecting security tu turn op any moment so after less then 1h30 I went back home. Maybe I'll revisit this one soon for the other parts. Missed the morgue. Hope you enjoy this. 1 going up IMG_3506-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 go into the light IMG_3503-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 where is the lab result?

  13. A location I did on my own . After a nice walk I reached the site. Some parts of there seems still t be in use. One building had some new looking alarms and no windows were damaged. First building I tried seems lead to nothing. Walked in a cellar with still a lot of cables, a new looking fusebox and no trash. There was no way to go further up so I tried the other buildings. Still needed to do some climbing but then the explore could start. It looked like a small coal mine the closes a few decades ago. Spent there a few hours. At one moment there was a car going over the terrain. Not sure if it was security or not but I waited hidden in a dark corner of the building for some time. Nothing happened and I started going to the exit. Hope you enjoy the picture. 1 I was hooked IMG_2740-Pano-Edit-2 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 spin that wheel IMG_2939 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 total control IMG_2929-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 the curtains closed for this mine IMG_2924 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 5 no errors IMG_2897-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 6 to much tension IMG_2888 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 7 gear up IMG_2852-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 8 spin me arround IMG_2829-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 9 puch it IMG_2798-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 10 goodbye IMG_2844-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr
  14. Tnx Someone told me that the morgue is already gone. Can't check it anymore since the poe is closed. Damn security
  15. Thanks. Indeed still quite clean but abandoned for sure. And probably it will stay so until the building will be demolished. Same story as with the hospital I visited last year (l'hopital demi). It's now a pile of rubble,and new buildings are constructed now. No time for some real decay.
  16. Well done sir. Love the natural decay of the trains and surrounding. I also like your toning.
  17. One I did on my own. Was in that neighbourhood on a non urbex occasion. Was travelling light with only the camera and my tripod. Parked the car some distance away and walked over there. Once inside it was surprisingly quit busy there (I thing 8 persons) in a closed shop). One of the persons was carting a baby. It looked like a family day out to me. Went upstairs and waited to come down when the people were gone. Strange to see so much stuff still in the shelf's. 1 IMG_3003-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 IMG_2977-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 IMG_2958-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 IMG_2990-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 IMG_2998-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 6 IMG_2981-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 7 IMG_2961-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 8 IMG_2960-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr
  18. Thanks for the responses. And yes there still was some beer in those crates,but I think it was well beyond the date of consumption. There were more personal stuff in there like passport of the owner. Made me wander what happened with the man.
  19. Thanks guys . I should also be going more often to Germany.
  20. It's been a long time that I posted something here. Missing the time for the editing of the photo's. This was my last explore and it was an underground adventure with the same partner of all the underground explores. It's was an iron mine that closed several decades ago like many others in that neighbourhood.It was a nice walk to find an entrance (not the main entrance ). It was inside warmer than outside. This time only one level explored but probably there are more entry's because there was also some kind of elevator (not found thou but other explorer did). There were a lot of collapses places. All the timber was parished and the metal well rusted. Also some cracks in the ceiling. Nice that there were some painted street names on the wall (some in German, other in French). There was every ware since of life ( fungi's, in white and yellow). Animal bones, one bat and animal excrements that turned in something fluffy by the fungi that were growing on that). For the rest the mine was well stripped of almost all the rails and cables. But never the less, a nice trip. 1 it's going to be a bumpy ride IMG_3050 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 hold on to the railing IMG_3048-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 end of the line IMG_3045-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 big pulley (fisheye) IMG_3041-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 5 tunnel of fungi life in white and yellow IMG_3037-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 6 that cart didn't make it out IMG_3034 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 7 stack 'm up IMG_3031 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 8 light in the" pouderie" IMG_3026-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 9 the main tunnel IMG_3009-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 10 iron bows IMG_3014 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 10 dancing on the ceiling IMG_3018-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr
  21. Tnx, Lightning is done with 2 or 3 flashlights with more or less the same color temperature. Strange to see so much collapses after only a few decades. The grey stuff on the ground was like bad cement with to much sand in it. .
  22. Did not see many reports from this hospital. It was one that was in the process of demolition. One wing was already gone but this gave me an nice access to the basement through the rubble. It felt strange. the heating was still on,power and the clocks were also working.. Some of the x-ray machines were still powered on.Probably part of the building was still in use,as there was an ambulance in the garage.But i heard of rumours that there was an alarm there,so didn't explore this vehicle. Since I was alone this time, my senses were working overtime.At a certain time, I saw a vehicle of security parked outside of the building ,while I was on the top floor.Time to leave.I went back to the entry point,where the basement was in A pile of rubble and heard people going in just above me. Then I left via the back because the car was still parked at the front. A nice explore, at the last day of the year. 1 the kitchen area IMG_0316 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 Hallway with names of the persones who worked there IMG_0323 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 one of the rooms IMG_0327-HDR by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 sad looking lamp IMG_0332-HDR by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 5 ready for scanning IMG_0362 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 6 also ready for use IMG_0369 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 6 already 15.45 ?
