Went a saturday, met a nice belgian guy also on his own at the entrance so we went together a little then met up again to exit.

I guess everybody knows the place so i'll keep it short:

A former steel mill, closed around 2010. The liquid cast iron was transported from the blast furnaces to it by pocket wagons (torpedoes). Every day, hundreds of tons of cast iron traveled 20 km in the middle of a city of more than 200,000 inhabitants. This was unique in the world.
It has now been hit hard, for years by copper thieves, as usual, making a fabled restart probably impossible.

cheers
