It is quite rare for an entire village to disappear, but this is unfortunately what is happening to Doel, close to Antwerp Belgium.

The village which dates back to 1267, is nestled on the left bank of the river Scheldt next to one of the main nuclear power plants in Belgium. Somewhere in the 1970's it was decided that the expansion of the Antwerp harbour, would eventually make Doel disappear.
