visited with: Szk, r2s and Adam, as a part of sesyjni mordercy crew.

This is completely unknown site, even among Polish explorers, i think we were the first (and who knows maybe the last) crew to enter here, quite sentimental journey as it's located in my hometown in Poland.

history: Elanex is one of those industrial complexes, which in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century shaped the face of the textile Częstochowa. Land was purchased in 1889, and factory was established in the same year under the name of Motte, Meillassoux and Caulliez. The brick and stone architecture contains Neo-Gothic style, designed by Edward Lilpop well known in ŁÃ³dź and Warsaw, the architect of many buildings, mainly banks. In 1926, "Motty" changed its name to Union Textile. After the war the factory was called the Wool Industry Plant Częstochowa (imienia Koszutskiej), and finally Elanex. It has been closed in October 2002.

As we had to rush to get inside (the site is still pretty active) i didnt manage to take any external shots, but borrowed one from other crew members.
