This was one of the twelve places we visited on our very recent tour to Belgium. Very well trodden and what you could call a “tourist” explore as everyone seems to do this one but we hadn’t so it was good to visit and take a few photos however brief. In fact, as we were just about to leave, three Belgium guys arrived to take over.
“No longer striking”
Very Brief History
A Mill built in 1920, that was once a restaurant, then a disco and finally a bowling alley. The mill was listed and apparently the town forced the owner to renovate.
Building looked like it was starting shortly when we arrived. Totally wrecked and a massive hole in the roof combined with rain added to the decay. A small set of photos but some great details. Sadly, none of the exterior due to the rain but the bowling mill has a large windmill on the roof which can be seen from several roads leading to the spot.
I had a look around the bottom end of the alley and there were no balls or pins behind the scenes which was a shame.
“Setting up the scores”
All in all, I am glad we stopped, even if it was only for ten minutes.
Thanks for reading.
