..is what the mad lunatic Belgium kept shouting us after he found us inside this wonderful old house..he was not happy finding us in here ! bloody foreigners…no sense of fair play..we’d just driven 200 miles to get here..walked about 5 miles up and down the valley trying to find the place, it was cold, snow on the ground, braved a dead and decaying animal at our entry point and we had all barely got more than a handful of shots..still at least I can say I have seen it ! Chateau Noisy!


Miranda Castle also known as Noisy Castle is a 19th century castle in Belgium, in the region of the Ardennes. The castle was built in 1866 by the English architect Milner under commission from the Liedekerke-Beaufort family, who had left their previous home, Vêves Castle, during the French Revolution.

Their descendants remained in occupation until World War II, when it was taken over by the National Railway Company of Belgium (NMBS) as an orphanage. It remained a facility for the use of children until 1980. It has stood empty since 1991. Although the local municipality has offered to take it over, the family has refused, and the enormous building is now (as of 2011) in a derelict state.
