First stop

July 2013

Another trip over to Belgium for 3 days of fun. This time, joined by two good friends who had never done any exploring over the pond before.

The plans were set and the day came when we travelled early morning to Brussels Midi Train Station and collected our car. The weather, like the UK, was experiencing some great temperatures which made the journey over the next few days, quite hot and sweaty. Not quite the weather for climbing and whatnot.

The first plan was to arrive at a large Villa about 30 minutes away and get started on the photography.

Having easily negotiated our way into the grounds without being seen, we entered via the access door at the rear of the property and spent a couple of hours exploring and photographing before moving on.

Unsure on the history of when this rectory/convent was abandoned but seems to be a while now.

These are just two of the photos I took from this place. The rest can be found at my set on Flickr, where there are still more to come (eventually).

Satisfied with the first stop, we moved on and travelled towards Bruges but not before stopping at the abandoned Bowling Mill.
