    Heavy Metal is a high capacity steel strip mill in the centre of Belgium, part of the factory is live, but we are interested in the parts which are not!

    The sheer size of these buildings made this one of my favorite explores to date, the smelting pots and lifting equipment around the building look large (while we are high up on a 70m gantry) but at ground level they tower above you they are vast, epic examples of heavy industry.

    Production stopped in the liquid steel plant very recently (sometime in 2012) and this can be seen as soon as you get past the fence. Trains, cargo containers, cranes and heavy lifting equipment littered allover the inside of the factory. The main attraction (other than the size) has to be the massive smelting pots which are all around the shop floor.

    I could have spent an entire day in here, it was awesome and i can't wait to return 2 hours just isn't enough.

    Some history:
