History

The construction of the camp started in 1930 and was completed in 1933. The barracks was expanded in 1935 - 36. Today, the camp has 18 buildings, including a water tower.

In time of peace, it housed the fortress troops of the surrounding bunkers, like the large artillery fortresses of Rochonvillers and Molvange.

During the occupation, the camp was be used by the Germans. Later the camp was used by the training companies of the regiments, stationed at Thionville.

At the Saint Gabriel day (patron of transmissions) in 1961 or 1962, General Massu (commanding the 6th Military Region and friend of the camp commander, Captain Laurent) visited the camp of Angevillers.

At times still used as a training ground, the camp was finally abandoned in 2008.

 

Visited two times.

My first visit was at the beginning of May, with @The-Raw, @Maniac, @extreme_ironing and Elliot5200. But due to too little time I could not enter all buildings.

For this reason I returned three weeks later with a none member, to explore the rest of the area, too.

      Not sure on dates of closure, but a beautiful power plant.
      This was used to power the Iron works next door which has now become a museum.

      ok, been a while since I posted from this trip.
      Day 3, after a very messy night involving several bottles of "baron" red wine, our motley crew awoke.
      Where were we going ?? The night before had been frantic messages home and abroad trying to figure out if the place was still open.......... yes/no/yes/no, then we decided Foret, but then we decided prison........ the last message I had stated it was open, so we got in the car and set off.
      After at least 3 wrong turns on the motorways we finally got heading in the right direction !!
      We met up with 2 explorers from Holland, Mornix and Mallory, good friends and really good to see them again. (Mallorys Apricot pie was amazing !! and who says prison food is rubbish )
      Long story short......... we got in........ took some pics......... go out........ no dramas no gypsies but we heard a few guns being fired in the prison next next door.























      cheers
