Haha....there was but I wasn't satisfied with the shot and wanted to catch some summer rays!

What amazes me is that this is a well trodden place and its been nearly a year since I've been there the first time and it still looks great.

Nice photos too btw :)

It's stayed almost totally intact since it was abandoned in 1995 which is an astonishing feat considering how well trodden it is in these circles, it really shows the respect for places like this over the water.

These little places continue to amaze me in the fact they're left untouched and forgotten, completely different mentality to the 'lets wreck it' attitude of the UK. Of course media coverage doesn't help. It's probably a good thing there's no history on the place, if it was well known it wouldn't look like that!

Excellent set mate.

Damn right, couldn't have put it better!

It also helps this place is in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere, with residents living opposite who, from personal experience and stories I've heard don't really mind photographers going in, but I bet if they heard any idiots milling around they'd be right on it!

Bloody nice shot this. Sad to say it doesn't look like this now, it's definitely starting to get trashed. One of my favourites from my first visit to Belgium in the summer and since my return the other day, well, lets say you can see the difference. Still worth going to though but the magic isn't quite the same. Fuck, I hope this doesn't go the way of Potters.

Me and Mr. Saint used it for the exact same purpose fella, though we dropped in early enough to get some shots in the last of the days light. Not a bad place for a kip even if I kept us up most of night with ghost stories. :D

Can someone give me the adres please?

Im afraid thats just not going to happen, if you ask on a public forum for an address you are really not helping yourself out mate!

So you joined today and expect locations handed out to you!i would have a read of the FAQ'S mate !

      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.
