Urbex – Moulin Bols

Abandoned water mill somewhere in Belgium. This was a very short exploration this time, as this mill is very little: it only has a few rooms which are all empty except for the machinery. As far as I know, this mill has been built around 1750, a place that must have seen a lot of changes ! It is not yet in a too bad condition of decay, but if nobody tries to renovate it quickly, it won’t last long before it collapses on itself…

This is a very charming place, and very well preserved from vandals probably because it’s located in a rural area of Belgium. Even though it was empty, I like those kind of very old little places. It makes you feel like travelling through time. I only regret that these walls can’t speak and tell me about all the things they’ve seen. A funny little detail: in the barn next to the mill, which was in a very bad condition, there was an old juke box. It’s all these little things that makes the pleasure of urban exploration ! You don’t always need a big industrial place to be amazed, some little places are full of a little something that is magic and that you can hardly explain…
