Urbex – Factory DN

Abandoned paper factory somewhere in Belgium. Much of this factory‘s buildings have been demolished, but the administration building and some other buildings along with the watertower are still there, though they hardly testify now the size that this factory had once in the past…

This factory has been built around 1850 and was at first a pulp factory which managed to be the biggest of its kind in Europe. Later it began to produce paper. In the years 2000, the too common story happened: the factory was filled with debts, went bankrupt and eventually closed its doors. Most of the buildings were quickly demolished, and there’s not much left of the factory right now. The main attraction being the administration building and its beautiful marble staircase with the stained glass window. A nice exploration, which left me a bit frustrated not to be able to see the old industrial buildings with the steam machines which are gone now…
