Monastery dating back to the 17th century. During the French Revolution, the monastery became a refuge for psychiatric patients. The nowadays abandoned ward was built in the 1930s and became abandoned in 2007 when the patients were moved to modern buildings on the same site. The ward will however soon be demolished.
Well hidden in a remote location amid the fields of a quaint little village in Belgium, one can find the small villa ‘Maison Chez Fien’. This austere little dwelling was abandoned in a hurry. Stuffed with slowly decaying household equipment, pottery, glassware and books, it acts as an untouched witness of times past.
Abandoned slate quarry with a depth of approximately 170 meters. In its heydays the quarry produced more than 1 million high quality dark grey slates annually. Rumour has it that the quarry had to close in the 1980s after an accident occurred in one of the 7 underground levels. Luckily none of the workers was present in the mine chamber when this incident took place.
