Once the largest manufacturer of rolled rod and wire solid cylindrical steel sections in Europe, this XXL Steel mill closed in 2009. Producing over 1m tonnes of Steel a year, manufacturing figures took a dive thanks to cheapo Chinese steel and our Indian friends (no longer welcome in France incidentally) took their production elsewhere.

We had a look in here early on a Saturday morning, afterwards rocking up to the market in the local town square looking like we'd just spent a day working in a steel mill... :rolleyes: I also fell down a hole in the dark, it wasn't funny to start with but then it was.
