    Default Hasard Cheratte Coal Mine, Liege, April 2010


    Hasard Cheratte is a former coalmine on the outskirts of Liege, Belgium which closed in 1977. It has a distinctive presence that dominates the view from all around. It comprises of a massive concrete winding tower, a castle-like building that houses a secondary winder, bath house and other associated buildings - as well as the mine itself which we got a sneak preview of on this visit. I had visited Cheratte in June 2007 with Jaff Fox and Valan and enjoyed it a lot, the re-visit earlier this month certainly didn't disappoint.

    The route in and out was 'interesting'!

    Visited with King Al and bumped into a group from the Netherlands.




















































    This was the first explore of the trip, more to come!
