Ruines of Lede palace, Lede, Belgium

While driving from Antwerp to Brussels, I decided to make a short detour and pass by Lede. The weather was quite exceptional for October, and I have made some pictures of the Lede palace ruins. Thanks to a local guy there, who explained how to get there though a park, to see the back side as well. He said that I was too late, and most of the palace was demolished before summer 2015 due to it was slowly falling apart and became dangerous for visitors. What a shame.

He also said that local community is now discussing if they like to rebuild it, but as it is quite costly, and he was taling about a half of a million euro check, there are people, who is against that.

That confirms once more, that it is worse to see things, before it becomes too late.
