An urban explorer has revealed a forgotten fairy-tale castle that’s been left to decay. Bob Thissen, 33, visited the secluded spot in the northeast of France, which is believed to have been abandoned for six months to a year. Many of the once noble site’s ceilings have fallen, water damage is rife in the attic and the floors are littered with rubbish, unwanted belongings and debris.
Built in 1987, Thissen believes the castle had to be abandoned when it became too dangerous for the owner to live in it. He discovered skulls with ornate jewelry wrapped around them and large taxidermy pieces, from an outspread bird to a boar’s head, deer and more.
The site, which had remained with its most recent owner since 1973, stands like a time capsule of the old world, from which much of its belongings originate. Ornate chandeliers hang from expansive ceilings, hand-carved chairs from a bygone time sit gathering dust and numerous religious statues inhabit the deteriorating dwelling. (Caters News)

Let’s talk about quality stocks. Of course, this is the direction that every investor wants to go; but the question is, how to recognize them? Do we go all-in on the big-value, big-name giants? Or do we dig a little deeper, and find the high-end nuggets that are hiding in the sandheap? Weighing in from investment bank Morgan Stanley, chief investment officer Lisa Shalett recommends the latter.
