First explore in Belgium

After getting off the Eurostar and collecting our hire car, we set off for the closest explore and an uncomplicated walk in. A little place known as the “Tree Mansion”. As we rolled closer to the destination point, it was instantly spottable and recognisable from other people’s photos. The only difference is that although this place was badly decayed, there was still some great rooms and items left behind. If this was in the UK, then the thieves, vandals and arsonists would probably have reduced this farm to smouldering rubble a long time ago.

“Basement bottles”

Parking our car a good 15 minute walk away and setting out for the first explore, it was remarkable that the tiny Belgium villages are not just safety conscious but also nicely kept and very clean.


We arrived down a muddy lane and accessed via a side door. Upon a brief look around and a check of the rooms, it was clear which rooms and details were worth capturing so we set up our equipment and started photographing. As there were four of us, we picked an area and moved around trying not to get in each others shots.

As this has been named as such, there is no history available on the location.All in all it was a great first explore and a worthy two hours of our time.

More photos will be available via Flickr when I have time to process and edit them but keep watching, I appreciate all comments and new contacts.
