We done the sister site of this last month so we decided to go back and do the other one. Very similar to the others around Belgium. This blast furnace is huge!

The area this place has been built, is well a shit hole! You feel very un-safe walking the streets that back onto the fence line of this place!

HF6 steel industry dates back to 1817 when industrialist John Cockerill established the first metallurgical company here. Surviving blast furnace no.6 was built in 1959 and was active until 2008. Despite of several promises the plant has never been restarted.

Was sad to hear that demolition is looming :(

Maybe I'll never get to set foot on the place that first inspired me over to Belgium....will have to make do with the sister site!
