France HFX Steel Works - 2018

Recommended Posts

An early partial visit of blast furnaces with @Himeiji   that ended by being caught by securitas, who called another security crew, who called the cops...... I wanna go back there but I don't know if I should :s

Hell, Mittal's a bitch, but a beautiful one xD

Some nice pics there, shame your visit was cut short. Any problems, or all ok in the end?

thanks 😃

 

well we didn't go to the tribunal so I guess it's alright :)

 

The people who caught us were pretty nice, they even drove us back to our car... But I heard some other guys were not as lucky as us...

Indeed, I have heard about those which was why I asked. Glad it didn't go that way for you

Actually, not so short) They caught us after 3h of hiding) In theory, we could maybe run the railway until the place where we could go out.

Nice report, liking the shot of the blast furnace. Have heard stories of this location and people getting caught there. Good thing you had nice security guards and managed to get a few snaps beforehand :thumb

And what happened to other people? I'm curious) Security said, they catch someone every weekend.

Heard of some explorers being told to leave the country after being caught (but that could just be a rumour) and people having other issues with the police. That doesn't surprise me at all, it's quite a well known location.

Leaving the country :) there're Arcelor Mittal plants in Luxembourg as well :) 

The first question of cops was actually about our nationalities. Perhaps, they have some ranking, like when you come to a tourist office, they usually ask from where you are)

Who knows more stories?

Impressive location and really nice shots.

Luckily, you had nice safety guys and no big problems after being caught.

I wonder, what would they do if we'd come there in a big crowd, like 50 people) I don't think they have that many security, and even cops in that village))

      History
      Maes Mynan care home was a two floor 33 bedroom care home on a site of 2.6 acres.
      The care home was for the elderly and it had its own day service and its own respite service for a short stay and emergency placements.
      The site was bought in 2013 by the healthcare company and has been left untouched since.
      The building itself we could not find much history about or anything about when the care home opened.
       
      Our Visit
      We decided to visit this place when we went out on a day trip to Engedi chapel (report will be up soon).
      On the way back we still had a lot of daylight left so we thought we would stop in and have a look at this site after seeing a report.
      The surrounding area was very overgrown and there was a long pathway leading up to the build.
      The site itself was in pretty good condition, well worth the visit if you have any free time.
      Be mindful if you do visit as just at the back of the site, there is a house that we assumed is occupied.

      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.
