*Links:

The carillon has its own Website (in French), with photos and description.  But it has not been updated since the death of Christian Boon in September 2012.

The ACW page about the carillons of Wallonia has a photo of this tower (see link at end of third table on the page).  There is also an illustrated article about it.

The French Wikipedia article about the building has photos of the tower but does not mention the bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Michiels bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
