    This old power station was the first stop on a recent trip to Belgium with extreme_ironing, monkey, obscurity, and wevsky. It was built in the first decade of the twentieth century in a typical Industrial Revolution architectural fashion with a grand steel roof. It was apparently abandoned a long time ago and subsequently bought by a private investor who has kept the turbines (??) and control panels looking pristine. Perhaps the plan was to turn it into a museum, I'm not sure, but for now it sits disused and it was a real pleasure to see it close up. My photos were taken while the sun was coming up, we had to get out of there pretty sharpish in the end so didn't get many shots in regular daylight. Could've spent all day in there!

    Nicely done gents. This was converted into an 'events' space, I wasn't sure whether they'd kept the turbines or not, clearly they have.

    The events space would be the downstairs then, looks like a prime spot for art exhibitions or something down there. Not much sign of any recent activity though....

    nice one mate, your shots came out really nice. I was too cold and tired to bother with any exposures in the dark. You shot of the control panel is brilliant. :thumb

    Excellent! :thumb particularly love those old generators, looks to be steam piston powered. :thumbs

    p.s. hope you don't mind, but those generators do make excellent computer backgrounds!:D
