  1. Ouvrage A28 is a smaller plant (petit ouvrage) of the Maginot Line. The site was surveyed by CORF (Commission d'Organisation des Régions Fortifiées), the Maginot Line's design and construction agency; A28 was approved for construction in May 1931. It was completed at a cost of 11 million francs by the contractor Duval-Weyrich of Nancy. The petit ouvrage was planned for construction in two phases. The second phase was to provide a separate entrance block a short distance to the rear. Heavy water infiltration required the provision of more extensive drainage work than originally planned. The galleries are excavated at an average depth of up to 30 meters (98 ft). The 1940 manning of the ouvrage under the command of Captain Coste comprised 127 men and 2 officers of the 161st Fortress Infantry Regiment. A28 played no significant role in either the Battle of France in 1940 or the Lorraine Campaign of 1944. After the Second World War it became part of a strongpoint in the northeastern defenses against Soviet attack. A28 remained under Army control until after 1971, when it was declassified and sold.

  3. Belgium Maison Petit - July 2013

    Evening all, For those in the know, this is the "other" cooling tower in Belgium with the small shed inside hence the name "maison petit". Not sure why the shed is there but we parked up and got here, I took what I wanted and got back to the car as we parked outside the main access gate and this looked conspicious at best. Just two, there was no way to walk to it safely (not that I could see anyhow) so variety is not really a spice of life here. Thanks for looking in.
