It’s a really long time ago since i’ve been to Hasard Cheratte but I recently found these photos in a backup on my computer. All this time I thought I lost them. Because of that (and because I still like them), I decided to put a few on my blog.
Hasard Cheratte is a beautiful old coal mine in the Liège area in Belgium. It was founded somewhere in the 1860’s. The main buildings almost look like a castle. The tower on the picture above sits over shaft #3, which is the deepest shaft at Hasard with its 480 meters. The mine has been closed since 1977, and if you visit it today, it looks like nothing has changed in the last 30 years.
