Car Graveyard #1 in Chatillon / Belgium

The little village Chatillon in Southern Belgium is also one of the classical Urbex locations in Europe.
When I was there in 2008 and 2009 two of the originally four car dumps were still present. The car bodies are mostly stemming from the 1950’s and 1960’s, put and left there as remainders from a close-by US Army base.
I heard though that at least one of the two remaining spots has been cleaned out meanwhile. Too bad actually…

    I’m sorry to tell you, but there all cleared out now. Sad day for urbex and car enthousiast all over the world.

      Thanks Pal for sharing. I heard some respective rumours before but could not verify them so far. Now it appears to be fact. I’m glad that I could still see it and preserve some images for keeping the memory alive…

    Do you know if these cars are still there and who owns them?

      Hi there,

      I have heard that the cars had been removed a couple of months ago. However, this is only hear-say. I suggest you comb further through the net, usually you will find recent comments on the subject and can thus verify this information.
      I guess both sites were private properties, so naturally there would be an owner. But I guess it just was seen and as treated as garbage, so I had no moral issues roaming around there.
      If you find out more, please let me know.
      Cheers, Roman

    if you look at google maps and then satilite, you can see that they’re still there just not so much anymore!

    Yeah, Google maps/satellite images are most of the time outdated and could be up to a year old when you look at them in google maps…So, at this point I do not know whether there are still cars at those sites or not…

    Hello the car in wood that does not exist any more but I would like to know the small house with car parts I liked knowing if that still exists?

      Hi Jo,
      sorry for the late answer. I was busy with a lot of other things so did not work a lot on my web presence….The house with the parts and the surrounding car wrecks are actually inside the village of Chatillon, pretty close and accessible from the main/through street. If you drive through there you should be able to see it, it is where there are a lot of bushes right next to the street. Let me know whether this was helpful, otherwise I will try to post some coordinates.
