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.

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.
And the dirty steelworks bit -
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.
