Belgium HFB Industrial Site - Belgium - February 2014

Recommended Posts

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:

      First report here, the well-known Chateau wolfenstein.
       
      Lost somewhere in the Belgian Ardennes, the castle was built 1931 by a rich Baron.
      It has many use throught the years, hospital, command centre during the war, care home for soldiers and, apparently some kind of jail for war and politic prisonners.
       
      Now, it 's still a part a the hospital complex but it is unused, except for a room where the hospital stocks some servers.

      An old train repair facility. Linked with one of the big steel works in Belgium. Now all closed. Things date back to around 2012. I think it closed around this time. the place isn't a bad mooch. a few people living inside taking copper.

      The well known Lycée V. has been a grammar school for girls only. It#s been closed in the 1990's and abandoned since.

      A large hospital,build in the 60's and will be demolished soon. It was one of the hospitals where they also removed the lamps and tables in the OK room.
      But still a nice location for a Saturday with a nice staircase.
