It is rare to find an abandoned building in the Netherlands - and if one does they are usually extremely well secured. Imagine my luck this week on driving locally to notice a mansion recently boarded up on the ground floor but easily accessible. Parking up I took my chances to have a gander through the garden woodland, mounted my Fuji X-T1 with the 10-24mm lens onto the tripod and took some shots of the exterior. Excitement ensued as I rounded the building to find a door not yet boarded up. Venturing inside I could see that some minor work had been done, buckets placed to catch drips (but not overflowing yet so recently installed) so it is likely that accessibility will be a short lived thing. You have to take your chances when they present themselves and it sure beats having to drive to Belgium for an Urbex fix!
