During a conversation with a fellow explorer we  came to the conclusion that I have been able to visit some beautiful steelworks ... In the neighboring countries! Having this playground of rust and steel in my backyard and even went there, was quite embarrassing... . A bit later a date was set and another  week later I stood on the blast furnace, enjoying the sun and the view. Wow! I immediately understand why the great love for industry begins here for so many explorers.  And admit, there are worse places and views to eat your sandwiches.   After our picnic and the conclusion that my fellow explorers was severely sunburned, we went back and went to discover the beautiful places that this place has to offer , bumping into the resident copper-thieves here and there, but they didn't seem to feel bothered by our presence.

 

1. the road up to the blast furnace. I love it that you can spot 'her'while you're gradually approaching. Also, active trains running by from the right hand side  make it a surreal experience

Nice Pictures, I love those rustic industry places! (:
We're going there on Sunday, but I heard they tightened the security some months ago. Anybody who was there lately or can tell something about that?

      A church that stands in a small village right on the main street.
      The condition of this church is still good.

      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.

      In a tram depot you find these unused and rotted trams.
      It was not possible to make more pics, because the security from the tram depot get us.

      I saw a couple of pics of this epic little turbine hall online, so from google maps, previous euro visits and general research I had a good idea of where it could be, also having a bit of a thing for the Belgian industry at the moment I had to have it!
      So while over there recently we went and checked the 2 buildings I had narrowed it down to - number 2 being the jackpot Soon enough we found our way in and were greeted by an extra bit of steelworkings as well as said turboners.
      Thanks to Obs for the joint effort in tracking it down and sustaining a foot injury in the process, worth it though haha I loved this place  
       
      No major control room porn, and I do love a control room, but it had two larger panels and other smaller ones dotted about.

      The Chateau LadyBug is a beautiful place to explore, with a lot of different styles and photo opportunities.
      The main building was built during the XIXth century.
      It became a restaurant during the 80's when a rich investor decided to reconvert himself in the restauration.
      He renovate the place to reach the standards of the most famous restaurants, hire a famous cook and won a star in the Michelin Guide quickly.
      Things turned bad for the owner when his chief cook decided to quit.
      Then, he tried to test his luck again by hiring two new cook, but without success, at all...
      Customers started to desert the place, bills started to piles up and bankrupt arrived few months later.

      Currently, the place is for sale for more than 2M.
      We explored it just in time before it was closed and cameras were installed.
