Paardenmarkt- Project Cleansweep

Paardenmarkt- Project Cleansweep

On my way back from Denmark I had the opportunity to stop off and do another photo from my Cleansweep project. Just east of Zeebrugge on the Belgian coast lies an area approx 1km off the coast is an area called Paardenmarkt. At this location in 1919 the British dumped approx 35,000 tonnes of munitions. Estimates reckon that about 10% of the total were chemical weapons mostly of German origin
