Chaudronnerie du Coq

August 2020

A vast industrial wasteland lost somewhere in Belgium, the Chaudronnerie ("boilermaking") du Coq will soon be a thing of the past. Founded at the end of the 19th century, the metallurgical plant went through several assignments after it was first closed in the 1970's.
Thirty years later, the site is definitely abandoned. A few large concrete buildings and another, much older, brick buildings are left behind. This is what we are going to visit on this beautiful sunny day.

The framework is made of wood. This is rare for an industrial building.
