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.

      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.

      The Chateau LadyBug is a beautiful place to explore, with a lot of different styles and photo opportunities.
      The main building was built during the XIXth century.
      It became a restaurant during the 80's when a rich investor decided to reconvert himself in the restauration.
      He renovate the place to reach the standards of the most famous restaurants, hire a famous cook and won a star in the Michelin Guide quickly.
      Things turned bad for the owner when his chief cook decided to quit.
      Then, he tried to test his luck again by hiring two new cook, but without success, at all...
      Customers started to desert the place, bills started to piles up and bankrupt arrived few months later.

      Currently, the place is for sale for more than 2M.
      We explored it just in time before it was closed and cameras were installed.
