Not far from the border with Belgium stands this old textile factory.
As a lot of other factories this one also has closed its doors due to the fact that it is cheaper to produce elsewehere on the world.

The buildings dates back to the 1880's.
After 130 years this factory is history now.

That's a nice looking mill, and almost completely intact as well. Good stuff Bart!

Lovely! The skylight in the first pic is cool.

Please do not adjust your mind, there is a slight problem with reality.
