The amount of steel in these buildings is incredible. With a blast furnace just around the corner, demolition and recycling was just a matter of steel prices rising high enough.

The morning sun playfully shines through holes in the corroded roofs and walls. With the singing of the birds it could have been the start of a beautiful day in the forrest. It is however one of the last beautiful days in the existance of this factory.

On the west side demolition has already begun.
