It's very rare that I get to christen a location on a forum, and even rarer when that location happens to come from Belgium.

There is quite a story with me and this spot, I first 'found' it over two years ago while I was searching for locations for my first ever trip to Belgium but as the blog I found it on (and I'll be buggered if I can remember the name of it) was years out of date and the location was named, and I'd never seen it on any Belgian forum I assumed it was long gone, but it went on my map anyway. Over the next couple of years I went to Belgium a few times but this was always too far out the way to realistically consider an explore opportunity and it left my mind. All that changed a few weeks ago though when out of nowhere I saw a video someone posted on the OS Facebook page of the location! Some frantic question asking was done as to whether it was recent or not (it was) and suddenly, with the route we were planning on taking through Belgium this time it was very much doable!

So, I bring you a stripped out house with an awesome surprise in the barn.....Maison Rover (so christened by me).

      Strolling trough the mountains we came across an interesting site.
      Abandoned cars and a lot of junk on the side of a steep mountain. 
      we have no idea how it got there, but here is a quick look at the spooky abandoned cars of La-Roche.

      In the Belgian Ardenne mountains on a spit of land in the small town of La-Roche de Ardenne, Lies a camp site beyond anything i have ever seen.
      A camping in rapid state of decline, the most uncomfortable place i have ever seen. Dirty and riddled with trash... 
      Oh and the abandoned camp site is right next to it, so don't mistake  the two. one just looks abandoned and one is.
      But feeling our way in darkness we did come across some amazing finds.

      probably a well known site. It was more then 4 years ago that i visited this one so a revisit was planned.
      On a sunny Sunday I went alone to this site;following the same path as 4 yeas ago,but wanted to see some other parts of this giant plant. Walked there for more than 4 hours and still not seen everything. Unfortunately the metal thieves were also active that day,removing metal ,so sometimes little parts and bolts fell down near the blast furnace. They even used a grinder. Security had a day of I think. (heard that 2 weeks before,some explores were caught here by security). It makes U think.
      Again a nice view from the top,and nice place to take a break.When I was up there ,I heard a lot of sirens and fire trucks  coming towards the site,but (un)fortunately) there was a small fire in a home near the site.

      History
      This Octel site in Amlwch was chosen in 1949 to collect bromine from the sea, it was picked by H Fossett and R O Gibson because of the strong tidal flow, the depth of the sea in the area and gulf stream sea temperatures. The plant was built and finished construction in 1952, ready to start collecting the bromine out of the sea.
      The site was officially owned by Octel until 1989 when the production of bromine chemicals became more important which resulted in Great Lakes purchasing the site due to them specialising in bromine chemistry.
      In 1995, one of the BOT2’s that was used for collecting bromine chemicals was badly damaged by a fire that occurred on the site. Two of the 30-metre towers were destroyed and around 5 people were injured.
      Octel bromine works started their operations in 1952 and closed in 2004.
      Canatxx purchased the site and announced plans to turn the site into a liquid natural gas storage site.
       
      Our Visit
      This is one site that we have kept our eye on for a while, but never got around to visiting.
      Finally, we decided to pay the site a little visit and we were not disappointed with what it had to offer. We made sure to visit on a sunny, bright day so we could spend as much time as we needed to explore the whole site.
      It took us a good few hours to explore the whole site but was definitely worth the time and drive there.

      This courthouse is more then 14o years old.
      It has been empty for some years now and has a lot of treasures to offer.
      The courthouse is just huge. Many aisles, stairwells, offices and 14 boardrooms.
      In the entire building is still a lot of equipment available, the heaters are still running and the electricity is not turned off. In the basement, the light is burning in some rooms, files are still lying around and all the electric clocks in the house are still running.
