Belgium Mon G - July 2013

Recommended Posts

First report of mine from the July 2013 Belgium tour with Scattergun, Stussy and Lost

Superb time had and i`m sure lots of funny stories to be shared, like my mighty french pug`s heating being stuck in full during a belting heatwave, with the record temp in the car hitting 41 !!!

This was the first destination after having been a little bit messy the night before on the Newcastle - Amsterdam ferry.............. what else is there to do !!!

In the blind panic of being late and needing to be at another site we only had 1hr to do this beast, so 1 day I really want to back and get some of my angles right :)

on with the pics

Got a few of mine online, so just adding em onto here to try not spam the forum up with Belgium Derps!

Was our first explore arriving on foreign soil, I happier wandering the long corridors than in the chapel where everyone was trying to get shots. Great start to the trip, even though Scattergun and myself were lucky to be alive after fearing instant death on the Ferry having been sat in the back seat of the car whilst the car rolled forward into impending doom, some numpty forgot the apply the handbrake fully and engage a gear. Won't mention names for that, you know who you are!!!

      Town Mansion 
      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.
      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!












      If you got this far, thanks for reading

      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.

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