The story about this so called ghost town in known well around. Once a village with over 1300 people living in it, it is now almost abandoned. The only ones left are the ones that are not thinking about leaving. The town itself should have been gone ages ago if it was for the Belgian goverment. The first plans were in the 1960’s, the port of antwerp was going to be much bigger and the town was just in the wrong place.
The town has been plaged by graffitis artists, squaters and thousands of urbexers and other visiters.
Abandoned: still not totally abandoned
