  1. probably a well known site. It was more then 4 years ago that i visited this one so a revisit was planned. On a sunny Sunday I went alone to this site;following the same path as 4 yeas ago,but wanted to see some other parts of this giant plant. Walked there for more than 4 hours and still not seen everything. Unfortunately the metal thieves were also active that day,removing metal ,so sometimes little parts and bolts fell down near the blast furnace. They even used a grinder. Security had a day of I think. (heard that 2 weeks before,some explores were caught here by security). It makes U think. Again a nice view from the top,and nice place to take a break.When I was up there ,I heard a lot of sirens and fire trucks coming towards the site,but (un)fortunately) there was a small fire in a home near the site. 1.

  2. Hello, Sorry for the delay in posting, I have just moved house and only just got the internet! This was from a few weeks ago. This place is HUGE! we only had an hour here, rather than get loads on internals, I thought I would get mostly externals and climb the tower thing in the middle of the whole site. Hope you like! A massive industrial site! HFB 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. I have done a little video of the tower: Thank You!
