Looking for other explorers in Belgium, NL, France, or Luxembourg!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I'm looking for people to visit locations together, somewhere in Belgium, NL, Luxembourg, France, or nearby)

I'm rather experienced with urbex, but I don't really like doing it alone and it's hard to find people who also understand what they're doing at locations.

I'm mostly interested in metro/underground stuff and roofs. Soon I'm planning to search for some roofs in Brussels and Amsterdam, and check out local metro. 

If you'd like to join me - let me know!

Welcome to the forum, my advice would be to put some reports up so people know what your about. Looking forward to seeing some content from yourself :thumb

hey @Himeiji do you have a gallery somewhere?

 

I guess you're near lux be fr border?

I have a couple of pictures on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/himeiji3/ (finally started it recently)

They are from Paris metro. I don't want to write detailed articles where exactly it is because people responsible for the security might also look up such info on the internet. Two months ago we barely managed to run away from security at one of locations, I injured my hand while climbing over fence, but it's better than if we'd get caught with lock picking tools. 

 

Yes, I am around that area - lu/fr/be

Aw ^^  I can pick padlocks but i don't think i ever saw a lock on a door that looked doable :s

 

I'm in France near Esch since 2 years now. 

 

Are you available this weekend and do you have very water resistant shoes and a torchlight ? xD

      The history of the Albanian Navy dates back to 1925, following the creation of the Albanian Republic. Albanian naval forces operate out of two main bases; Bishti-i-Palles in Durrës, and Pasha Liman in Vlorë, with four reserve bases respectively in Shëngjin, Porto Palermo, Saranda and a submarine base on Sazan island. The vessels of the Albanian naval force are mostly patrol craft and support craft as well as four whisky class submarines (Soviet Union built in the early Cold War period) which have been taken out of service at Pasha Liman. In Shëngjin a Soviet built minesweeper M-111 and an AFD-115 gunship remain abandoned at the entrance to a bunker. The Albanian navy still operates out of Shëngjin in a low capacity so it's still an active military zone but you are allowed to drive through it to reach a beach resort on the other side. Handy for us! Visited with adders, extreme_ironing, otter and reenie. Here's what we found....
       

      AFD Mujo Ulqinaku M-111 - A mine warfare ship designed for the location of and destruction of naval mines which combines the role of a minesweeper and minehunter in one hull. Minesweepers are equipped with mechanical or electrical devices, known as "sweeps", for disabling mines, so waterways are maintained clear for safe shipping. This one appears to have been disused since 1996 (the date of a calendar on board), just prior to the Albanian civil war, when many vessels of the Albanian navy were seriously damaged.


      Behind it sits this half-submerged AFD P115 - Albanian Navy gunship (Chinese type 62 "Shanghai-II") which has had its 57mm gun mount removed


       

      They sit in front of the entrance to a navigable bunker which was inaccessible. Another entrance parallel was also sealed although we reached the blast door for that one


      The AFD Mujo Ulqinaku M111 was named after Mujo Ulqinaku, an Albanian sergeant of the Royal Albanian Navy, known for his resistance to the Italian forces during the Italian Invasion of Albania in 1939. Armed with only a machine gun, he was placed at the centre of the defense line and fought uninterruptedly until he was eventually killed by an artillery shell from an Italian warship in the last hour of the battle. He was given the People's Hero of Albania award posthumously.
       

      On board the AFD - M111


      An old gun at the front






      You can see an active patrol boat moored up on the left of the shot
       
               
      Inside the AFD - M111
       



      Communications cabin
       

      A small engine room
       
               
      Hatches and squat toilets
       

      Kitchen




      All the cabins were locked except for this one




      Some old military posters
       

       

      Back on land, this AFD S104 - Huchuan class 'motor torpedo boat' is waiting to be scrapped. Powered by Soviet-era engines, these hydrofoil-equipped boats are capable of 50 knots (93 km/h; 58 mph) and carry two torpedo tubes for torpedoes, with some known to be armed with naval mines.
       

      A few dilapidated buildings remain nearby
       

      This building to the left was manned but we were just out of view so we took a quick peek at these old military vehicles


      Some rusty torpedoes lay on the ground alongside one of them


      A couple of old trucks overgrown by vegetation above the bunker. We were aware of someone from the base heading in our direction at this point so we hopped in the car and made tracks
       

      We made it to the beach resort on the other side of the military zone where unfortunately the pigs were waiting for us. Thankfully they just grunted a bit and we were on our way 😮
       

       Just in time to catch the sunset!
       
      Thanks for looking

      This building is confirmed to have been built some time around 1850. It is abandoned since AT LEAST 2013, when the first reports came onto the web. There are various documents lying around the building, either on the top floor in the storage area beneath the roof. 
       
      Hope you guys enjoy. 
      By the way, I hope no one hates me for linking to Flickr directly, as it would require me to export all images manually and upload all of them to various forums, which is more than time consuming.
      I was asked to link the pictures directly, so I decided to take the what I think are the best ones and embed them, and the rest of the pictures (which are more documentation than art) will be available on the Flickr Link. Hope that's okay with everyone.  Greetings.

      Lots of pictures here!
      I've always been partial to an underground space, the weirder the better! Sat in my research for many years was a place seldom seen. Armed with a vague idea I set off with Lucan on a hunt to see what we could find! Luckily it wasn't as difficult to find as expected! Most decorated underground spaces i've come across are normally very small, usually made of sandstone  and very very dark! These were a nice contrast  although a little bit tricky to capture with  the light lime stone and the light pouring in!  These are 19th century carvings of mythical creatures and emblems tucked away in such a quirky little space!  I think there's the head of a a couple things, a cyclops remains of a bird,  headless man some kind of boar some kind of bear/pig? many had glass around the eyes pushed into the stone!there was remains of a stone circle and lots of carved seating There was also the remains of some kind of tower a shell grotto and a cemetery! slightly puzzling thing to find in the location it was not an easy location to get the bodies too but the metal headstones just kept going into the brambles and the woods.

      Gagra is a seaside resort in Abkhazia, a de facto republic in northwestern Georgia. It used to be a popular holiday destination until the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict broke out in 1992. Like much of Abkhazia, it has since become a shadow of its former self. The beaches are quiet and hundreds of its buildings lie abandoned, including this former sanatorium turned hotel, which we spotted looking overgrown on google maps. On our approach we saw what looked like a grand palace and thought we must have the wrong building, but sure enough it was the right one and turned out to be a bit of a stunner. Having looked online since we are by no means the first to visit here, and it even has a few reviews on trip advisor! Visited with elliot5200.


       


       


      I may have got a bit carried away with photos of this entrance hall

      Not a bad view from the balcony


       


      The back of the building was in worse condition


       

                   
       


       
       
                    
       
       

       
       

       
      I could have spent longer in here but we had other stuff to see. Much of the town is abandoned, and indeed much of Abkhazia.
       
      Thanks for looking.
