The Bowling Mill

This mill was built in 1920 to gain electricity. In the 60s – 70s it was a successful disco/bar, a lot of famous Belgian and international artists performed there. Later it was transformed into a sauna and Thai restaurant. In 2005 there were plans to exploit it as a gambling area with slots, but the politcal parties protested as there was a school, graveyard, church and library close to it. The final destination was a bowling alley. In 1994 the mill was protected and listed as national heritage and in 2009 would be renovated soon awaiting it’s next destination.Today it’s totally abandonned and wrecked. I t has a hole in the roof, the bowling lanes are completely wet. They better hurry with the renovation as the decay is getting worser day by day..
