    Val Saint Lambert is a Belgian crystal glassware manufacturer, founded in 1826. Val St Lambert is the official glassware supplier to H.M. King Albert II of Belgium.

    We were a bit sick of the sight of razor wire on this trip and nearly turned back when we found it protecting this old factory. Thankfully it didn't take us long to figure out a way past it and it was worth the effort. Once inside it was a nice chilled wander and good to see something a bit different. Before we left we found a way into the live bit of the site which had far more stuff lying around in the dark, I didn't get many photos in there as we had didn't have time for light painting but easily could've spent another couple of hours in there. ​
