I know that feeling; abandonded houses in the middle of nowhere, that give you the creeps.
Had it the other day while detecting in the woods on my own, wearing a headphone doesn't help either as it isolate's all the sounds around you.
Great work Martin , where is it in relation to Petit Spai Bridge ?
About 150 metres up the hill, on the opposite side of the Ambleve to the Trois Ponts-Stavelot road.....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
great photos. Love these untouched areas. If you ever get more photos of the area. please share them.

The place is the tiny hamlet of La Vaulx Richard above Stavelot. Look at the background in the famous photo of Leidreiter and Knittel and several reference points remain to this day - something which makes visiting the area endlessly fascinating.....
Well done again Martin , i've just received my copy of Timo's book !

1st July 1916
Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
I will have to visit next time !
