17-12-91 la fin HF Uckange, that's what's written on one of the
walls in the control room. After 100 years the last blast furnance
was shut down and the curtain fell for "Haut Fourneau"
Lorfonte Uckange. Blast furnace N°4 is still there today and
so are some auxiliary buildings.
In the years that passed since it shut down not that much has changed.
The metal is rusting and plants are growing where they shouldn't
grow while some things are vandalized, but basically everything
is still where it was. It's a place of great beauty and you experience
an atmosphere of peace when you walk amongst the huge decaying structures.
