Urbex: IM Power Station Cooling Towers, Belgium – May 2014

The abandoned IM Power station Cooling Tower. This place has been on the to do list for ages but its always one location that gets bumped for other spots on our trip… finally we got round to seeing it. Sat over the water from the main buildings of the power station the cooling tower is gigantic…

Urbex: Mont G Monastery, Belgium – May 2014

The abandoned Monastery Mont G. There is not a lot of information about this place that I can share a very large complex the huge chapel is flanked by corridors of rooms used for accommodation and teaching. Visited with Kriegaffe9 and Andy K as part of the ‘missing man tour’ I was really pleased to see the inside of this place, the huge chapel was quite impressive and I quite liked the ground floor corridors which were starting to show signs of decay. Enjoy the photos.

Urbex: Pensionnat Catholique Boarding School, France – May 2014

Pensionnat Catholique is an abandoned Boarding School somewhere in France. The place is huge! Complete with a large chapel which shockingly was not located on the ground floor… There was also a large sports hall and lots of sprawling corridors of classrooms and labs. Visited this time with Kriegaffe9 and Andy K as part of the ‘missing man’ tour we spent a few hours here before sunset capturing the really nice light which was streaming through the windows in the late afternoon!

Urbex: Château Lumiere, Somewhere, France – May 2014 (revisit)

The abandoned but very grand Château Lumiere was built for the descendant of a wealthy tobacco tycoon the Neo-Baroque style building was erected in the early 1900′s. The building is protected and surprisingly appears in reasonable shape considering that information suggests that it has been largely unoccupied since the 1950′s…

The abandoned fairy tale castle, Castle Miranda aka Château de Noisy stands rotting and crumbling atop a large hill in Celles, Belgium. Surrounded by Forest, depending upon how you approach the building you are pretty much on top of it before you can clearly see where it is located…

Urbex: Gigawatt Power Station aka Power Plant XL aka The Cloud Factory, Belgium – May 2014

Not a great deal of information on this gigantic abandoned Power Station which is currently undergoing decommissioning. After seeing a couple of reports from some close friends we decided to throw this onto our list for the trip, the first location in fact as an early start seemed appropriate…

Urbex: The Last Asylum, Somewhere, United Kingdom – April 2014

The Last of the great Asylums in the United Kingdom to close its doors I believe in 2012. The now abandoned site is quite large and on a scale similar to that of some of the other big asylums in the UK. Due to it being one of the last to close the interior was unsurprisingly very modern and bare with most of the equipment I suspect being moved to functioning hospital and care home facilities shortly after closure.

Urbex: Asylum B, Somewhere, Scotland – April 2014 (revisit)

My second trip to the abandoned Asylum B in Scotland, this time with more success than the first! Last time we managed to get a few late night long exposure externals which came out pretty nice, however we were disturbed by security and asked to leave and so were unable to see the inside. This time luck was on our side and I finally got to see the spiral staircase…

Urbex: Asylum G, Somewhere, Scotland – April 2014 (revisit)

My second trip to Asylum G, this place is all about the Ballroom and the externals of the admin building… not a lot else to see here these days… My second time here I was hung over much like the first… definitely something about Scotland and getting drunk :D Visited with Baron Scotland and Lowri! Enjoy the couple of shots!

Urbex: Château Lumiere, Somewhere, France – April 2014

Château Lumiere Built by a descendant of a wealthy tobacco tycoon the Neo-Baroque style building was erected in the early 1900′s. The property apparently benefits from some historical protections from the government, it has however remained abandoned since the 1950′s and despite several changes in hands no-one has returned to occupy the place.

Urbex: Château de la Forêt, Belgium – April 2014

This unoccupied castle, Château de la Forêt, is a stunning Neo-Tudor style building. Built in 1860 the Castle sits in the middle of a forest with a large estate grounds. The Château is not technically abandoned, From what I have been able to establish the property was left to a group of descendants who are unable to agree upon a single owner…

Shortly before its closure it was been replaced by

Urbex: Château Du Cavalier, France – March 2014

There is very little history to be found on this abandoned Château codenamed Château Du Cavalier by other explorers. All I could seem to find out is that the property had been most recently purchased by a Chinese investor who apparently has intentions to refurbish the place back into a home or potentially a hotel.

Urbex: Château de Singes aka Castle of Monkeys aka Chateau la Folie, France – March 2014

There is very little information on the Abandoned Château de Singes which I could find on the internet. I’ve read that the House was built in the 17th Century and that the last owners vacated in around 1976. Singes is one of those buildings that just has some wow factor about it both internally and externally.
