Belgium Monastere du Trois Croix, Belgium Dec '13

Recommended Posts

Penultimate location on my Belgium trip last week, following the most gutting bust I've ever had at Villa Heil, and finding a Polish squatter on a MacBook sat on the bed of a little derp house we buggered off to here.

I don't know what it was with this place, it didn't make me feel inspired, and as such under an hour into it I packed all my gear away and just wandered around unstaging stuff that had been staged for photos.

Cant beat stumbling across the odd squatter as can make for an awkward few seconds whilst both assess the situation.

Is a bit hard to tell what this place is almost looks like some place of study with live in accommodation ?

Either way some nice shots Mookster and thanks for the share

Nuns used to look after children here, so I was told by Luke. We found a bar come pub downstairs, odd really given the religious theme but don't hold me to this for history... Luke and PS know about it.

Nice snaps Mooks.......

nice set, what happened with Heil ? just out of interest ?

Got in absolutely fine, got to the top of the staircase and about 30 seconds later the people in the lawyer's office next door were at our access point asking us to leave or they'd call the police and no amount of sweet-talking would change their minds :(

The perils of midweek exploring, just have to take it in your stride however gutting it is.

      Somewhere in Germany, in a quiet park, lie those beautiful Tanks.
      Quiet park ? Not really, a military barrack nearby often throws training in this park, as the sign explained us kindly. 😂

      We were lucky enough to dodge those training, even if i'm pretty sure it doesn't happen more than once a month, but still.

      We were not able to find which type of tanks it was, i read on the internet that it could be some M40 Patton or M41 Walker Bulldog,
      but i'm skeptical, as both of them were produced in the early 50's and were used in vietnam war and korea war, far from Germany.
      And, as they were demilitarized and trashed, the clues were hard to find.

      However, it was like a scene of war, one Tank crashed near a tree, another one half buried, very dramatic.
       
      Even if it was a short one, it was a very good exploration, with a lot of interesting light and very cool models.

      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.

      It's been a while since I've posted anything. I though I would share something really cool, this is the Kenosha Theater. I have a thing for old movie palaces and I could not pass this up especially since I live pretty close to it. It technically isn't abandoned since a man owns it, but he dosen't have the money to fix it so it sits in it's abandoed state. I will also add that he does give tours to anyone. That's all I have to say so enjoy the decay.
