Belgium Agnus Dei - Sept. 2014

Recommended Posts

Dropped by here with The_Raw, Sentinel, and 3 non-members. People call it Agnus Dei but I can't find any distinct reason for that tbh. Beyond the Chapel which lies on the roadside, there's also a small hospital complex at the rear which has been partially gutted by fire, really dodgy floors here!

Stained glass in the chapel was in great condition overall apart from those on the road facing side which were smeared with pollution. Building was a bit leaky but quite well preserved apart from that, a good amount of peely paint. :D

External of the chapel and the smashed up remains of a previous exploring groups minivan.

A small room to the side of the alter, rain was falling heavily through the roof at this moment.

Heading back to the van after the storm abated. Some cyclist explorers also joined us mid way thru. :)

I hadn't seen anything but the chapel at this place before so was a nice surprise to see there's a bit more to this place. Would love to find out more about it's history but doubt that'd be easy without a name to go by...

Thanks for reading. :)

      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.

      A large hospital,build in the 60's and will be demolished soon. It was one of the hospitals where they also removed the lamps and tables in the OK room.
      But still a nice location for a Saturday with a nice staircase.
