Belgium Castle of Dreams (Very Pic Heavy) - 2014

Recommended Posts

firstly I make no apology for the size of this thread or the order of the pics, its been a 3 day battle of processing

Visited with Project Mayhem, Lowri and non member Diane

Well, what a crazy 30+ hours this turned out to be.

Left central englandshire at 4pm, only to realise that 1 member didnt have their passport !! so a quick detour to wales (guess who) and we were back on track, straight into an accident on the motorway, so after 90 mins of traveling approx 100 meters we were off again.................. I had built in about 2-3 hours buffer "just incase"...... this would be close.

Uneventful drive to the chunnel, until we heard of "problems" at the chunnel........ wtf !!! the curse was hanging over us !!

5 hours delay !! we wouldnt make it !! wtf !!!

Drive in and ask random bloke trying to sort out all the cars, and he said "just head to the trains, we`ve given up trying to sort an order out"

45 mins later we are on a train, 2 hours drive over the other side and a cheeky 2hours sleep in a service station.

Alarms go off and we are off again, met our contact and the rest is history...............

      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.

      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.

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