    We weren't sure what to expect with this place, the codename translates as 'crashes room' in German and 'strength cream' in Dutch so we didn't have a lot to go on, just one picture of a large control panel. We gave it our own codename in the end - Crack House, named after it being a hard nut to crack I suppose, and it just sounded better than the other one.

    The building is a large art deco structure with tall windows not dissimilar to the old turbine halls over there. We think it may have been a large sub station of some kind for the gigantic HF6 blast furnace site down the road but not sure. Access wasn't happening when we arrived but after a bit of brain storming, muscle power and perseverance we were in. The whole place has been fully stripped but it's still impressive, especially the long control panel stretching across what looks like a stage for concerts. I think I enjoyed it in here more than the others, some good decay and tell tale signs of what it must have once been like in there.

    You've made this look highly decent, never really fancied it personally due to 'big and empty' and lack of turbons.

    nice shots mate :thumb this one was seriously the biggest pain in the ass out of the whole trip! despite being quite empty it was quite an interesting place and the one light that still had power to it was odd considering how stripped the place was.

    Hmmm, I wonder what 'DANGER D'EXPLOSION' means? My Flemish is a bit rusty.

    Nice report man :thumb
