Belgium La Crypt -May 2013

Recommended Posts

This was pretty much the last explore from day 1 of our trip,yes its very done to death but i havnt seen it so it was new to me and something i wanted to do..Think the cemetery is closed now as there is signs pof work being carried out with portacabins and security etc

Explored with crazy fool,SpaceInvader and Sx-riffraff

Not a huge amount of pics as they all get a bit samey tbh..Loads i could have done with the 50mm but im not a fan of too many close ups of peoples names on the stones,so here's a mixed batch !

      First report here, the well-known Chateau wolfenstein.
       
      Lost somewhere in the Belgian Ardennes, the castle was built 1931 by a rich Baron.
      It has many use throught the years, hospital, command centre during the war, care home for soldiers and, apparently some kind of jail for war and politic prisonners.
       
      Now, it 's still a part a the hospital complex but it is unused, except for a room where the hospital stocks some servers.

      An old train repair facility. Linked with one of the big steel works in Belgium. Now all closed. Things date back to around 2012. I think it closed around this time. the place isn't a bad mooch. a few people living inside taking copper.

      The well known Lycée V. has been a grammar school for girls only. It#s been closed in the 1990's and abandoned since.

      Hello everyone!
      I never used to post reports often. But over the last 3 days & joining this forum has put me into a real good mood and the feedback has been amazing!! Thank you all
      This was an explore i was not to sure about. I did not like the location and it had a spooky feel about the place!
      We had been inside around an hour and it was pitch black before we started hearing lots of noises and talking.
      I was a little worried it would be some "chavs" or "kids" smashing the place up with all the noise so we decided to leave.
      As we where leaving we bumped into a photographer and a model in a wedding dress. - This was my first time bumping into anyone on an explore!
      We spend about 30 more minuets inside before we moved on to the next location.
      A little history -
      The Fletcher Convalescent Home opened in 1893 and closed in 1998.
      It served as a hospital and during the war. (A tuberculosis hospital for the military)
      Since it closed the buildings have been subject to numerous planning applications, none of which have been successful.
      This building also features on the in the Victorian Society’s “Top Ten Endangered Buildings” list of 2008.










      Thanks for looking!!
