Tour Report: Sand-Lime Brick Works

On a grey Sunday morning in easrly February of 2017, my wife and I ermbarked on a tour together with our friend Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex. Our plan was to explore a large abandoned factory that produced sand-lime bricks up until its closure about six years ago.
Freddy picked us up pretty early because we wanted to have enough daylight for our exploration. The drive was short; we arrived after little more than an hour.
Finding a good parking spot turned out to be a bit of a problem. The factory is surrounded by farmland and there is no public parking to be found anywhere. So we chose to take the road to a field that we suspected wouldn't be used on a Sunday and parked as far to the side as we could to leave enough room.
We gathered our gear and walked over to the factory premises. There was a long fence surrounding the place that we checked closely until we found an opening. The first step was done. Now we only had to find a way into the building. That part was just as easy. The first wall that we passed had a huge hole in it so that we could easily get inside.
The place was huge, and a lot of the machinery is still there. There was surprisingly little vandalism and graffiti. Due to the size of the place, we spent a couple of hours inside and checked out every corner of the building before heading outside to take some outside shots and walking back to the car.
Of the industrial locations that we've visited until now, this was one of the best-preserved. Six years of abandonment and almost no vandalism - you don't find that too often :)
