Belgium Belgium Bicycle tour various locations July 13'

Recommended Posts

Following on from Mooksters rather excellent recent report from our trip across the pond, allow me to give you bicycle porn and derps from erbex's most visited. So I will spare any history, it's all well known.

Fun filled with excellent company, as this hobby should be, two and a half days driving over 650 miles, ten sites, and I never creamed anyone!

Grands Moulins de Paris mill.

From downstairs I hear “ Guys, we have company†“Ooâ€Â, said I, “Fellow explorers?†Not unless they are in white shirts and black trousers! Really don’t know why they climbed that dirty tall fence, much easier way in I thought.

1 policeman, 2 policeman 3 policeman 4…… 5 policeman 6 policeman 7 policeman 8……..

And 1 outside blocking in my ‘Engleesh stuupeed’ car, with 3 of theirs. Got lucky after spurting hand sanitizer all over policeman 9, he had a sense of humour, they all did. Poppy, call me :-)

And my favourite, it's been respected so far, only two explorers 'tags' in the dust, which don't feel right here at all.

      Town Mansion 
       
       
      History
       
      The Town Mansion was originally built in 1912 by a wealthy petroleum importer. During the early 20th century, the area in which the mansion was built, had become a hub for many rich German families in the early 1900's. By 1918, once the First World War had come to an end and the town was heavily damaged by the intense bombing raids at the start of the war and then German occupation of Belgium in 1914. Only two houses in that street survived, the Town Mansion being one of those. It was then later occupied by a Belgium shipbuilder until the late 1960's, when it was used as an office space. The mansion was abandoned in 1991 and hasn't been formally resided in since.
       
       
      Visit
       
      Visited with @PROJ3CTM4YH3M and a non forum member. As I recall it was a particularly hot spring day and we all excited to see this location, partly to escape from the intense heat. Once we got inside we spent a short amount of time wandering around before we eagerly started taking our pictures. I can confidentially say that this is one of the grandest mansions in Belgium I have visited. I did wonder what the lives of the families that once inhabited it were like and the memories they must have had. It was a very enjoyable explore for me and as always, I hope you enjoy my photos!

      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.
