    Rather than write up individual reports for these sites asnd clog up the international forum I thought I would just do it in one.
    A good few days was had by all, a bit of camping, a couple of lush hotels, and a heavy drinking Liverpudlian who lives in Scotland:D

    Those in attendance: Baronvon, Demonhunter, Humpa, Ravenwing93, Ruby H Smith, Scattergun and myself.

    The locations: Château de Noisy, Hasard Collieries Cheratte, Piscine 'S', Powerplant IM, The Lost Alfas.

    Château de Noisy
    Present: BAJ, Baronvon, Demonhunter, Humpa, Ravenwing93, Ruby H Smith, Scattergun
    This was the last explore we did as a group of 7 as Baronvon and Scattergun had to fly back home after this.

    The official name of the castle is Chateau Miranda, it was named only later on with the name Noisy. It is a property established in the neogothic style of build. It was established in 1866 by an English architect with name Milner,unfortunately he never had the experience to see the completion of his building . he passed away too early.The castle served in the beginning as a summer residence of the family Liedekerke de beau’s fort. In the second world war the Chateau Noisy was taken by Nazis. Then the Chateau served as accommodation for children of the Belgian road employees as a holidays hostel. Now, however, since 1991 due to a fire it has lay abandoned. from the outside the property still gives a very good impression. Unfortunately, it goes to ruin in the interior increasingly with rotting floors and decay , The elements of time are taking control of this sad chateau.

    After a heavy night on the beer the night before, arrangements that had been made for 5.30am we postponed until 10am, so some of us feeling slightly worse for wear, we grouped in the car park of the hotel before the short drive to the Chateau. Walking through the woods, the chateau all of a sudden appeared from its leafy cover and we were left in awe, thinking this is going to be epic!






    Hasard Collieries, Cheratte
    Hasard dominates the tiny town of Cheratte. It was constructed in 1907 and was one of the first electric powered mine in Belgium.With up to 600 workers during its heyday it employed a vast amount of the male community in the area. The mine contains multiple shafts, the deepest being 480metres deep. The pit closed in 1977. and has been left in stasis ever since.

    Really enjoyed having a mooch around this place, was fun climbing flight after flight of stairs to get to the top of the headstock, then to come back down, walk across to the tower a repeat the activity of climbing stairs again:p: Many lols were had here, including Scattergun walking in on me nekkid trying to do a page 3 :banghead







    Piscine 'S'
    Present BAJ, Ravenwing93
    Thanks to jST on the info of this place.
    Pinched from Ravenwings report:
    The layout of this beautiful modernist building was based on an innovative concept: to combine different types of leisure infrastructure – in this case a swimming pool and a theatre – under the same roof. The grand staircase with a curtain wall was once the piece de résistance of this sublime architectural jewel. The ambitious plan however turned out to be less than succesfull; the pool/ theatre had to close, leaving this valuabe part of architectural heritage to decay.

    This place was my favourite explore of the trip as it was the first swimming pool that I have explored in. The access was erm... amusing shall we say. This place was explored by myself and Ravenwing93, as the rest of the group were still in bed!

    Powerplant IM
    Present: BAJ, Demonhunter, Humpa, Ravenwing93, Ruby H Smith,

    Cant seem to find a name for this place let alone any history so fuck it. After some funny access we discovered there was an easier way :banghead anyway, it was still fun. This was the last explore of the trip, by now we were down to a group of 5! Lots of pipe porn and plenty of nudity was enjoyed here.
