During a conversation with a fellow explorer we  came to the conclusion that I have been able to visit some beautiful steelworks ... In the neighboring countries! Having this playground of rust and steel in my backyard and even went there, was quite embarrassing... . A bit later a date was set and another  week later I stood on the blast furnace, enjoying the sun and the view. Wow! I immediately understand why the great love for industry begins here for so many explorers.  And admit, there are worse places and views to eat your sandwiches.   After our picnic and the conclusion that my fellow explorers was severely sunburned, we went back and went to discover the beautiful places that this place has to offer , bumping into the resident copper-thieves here and there, but they didn't seem to feel bothered by our presence.

 

1. the road up to the blast furnace. I love it that you can spot 'her'while you're gradually approaching. Also, active trains running by from the right hand side  make it a surreal experience

Some amazing shots there and a few bits that I never saw when I visited. What camera do you shoot with?

Nice Pictures, I love those rustic industry places! (:
We're going there on Sunday, but I heard they tightened the security some months ago. Anybody who was there lately or can tell something about that?

      The shaft pics i would have liked to have done better but due to heavy rain on the way in and back out i wasnt risking the camera for a better shot!Big thanks to Si for the helping hand at the top dragging my knackered body over the final push!!

      At first glance, the huge psychiatry campus with its historical buildings reminds you of certain pieces of literature or films. The early morning haze lies over the hospital grounds and really adds to that somewhat uncanny atmosphere. It´s still pretty early in the morning. Thus, we almost don´t meet any people. A situation, that changed completely on our way back, when we had to keep as insconspicious as possible among patients, nursing stuff and "normal" visitors. Yet, everything´s still pretty calm and we can enjoy the morning silence as we walk across the park-like grounds of the hospital, walking on paths which are bordered by beautiful flowers. Here and there, beautiful buildings appear. Everything occurs to be peaceful and neat. Almost a place for your well-being, at least form the perspective of a non-patient. Not before we pass by a building, fenced up by thick bars, reality sets in. As if by command, we can suddenly hear screams coming out of the building. 

      The hospital is largely still active. Only a small part has been disused out of unknown reasons. It seems like time´s been standing still here for a pretty long time. Old benches would´ve been disappeared in a jungle-like thicket entirely, if it wasn´t for their bright red colours. Across an architectural more than beautiful patio we enter the building in front of us. Inside, particularly striking are the numerous toys scattred around the building. What exact purpose the old building served remains a mystery.
