    1. The History "Forte Taille", located in Montigny-le-Tilleul, Charleroi is a former coal-mining colliery. Coal was first extracted in this area in 1755, initially via open-cast mining. Underground mining commenced at the site the next century, around 1865, when the first mines were sunk. The SA Franco-Belge coal mine was created in October that year and was a modest colliery, which adopted the production of "balls" of coal (agglomerates).

Known as both 'Manor House' and 'Ivy Farm Manor', the manor belonged to psychiatrist Neil Silvester, who practiced at Doncaster Royal Infirmary. He shot into the news in 1991 when he discharged a sectioned mental...

    A nice local wander for once. I had originally made plans to head further north with Landie_Man but with the impending demolition of this place looming large, felt it better to not miss out on a big local site like I have done in the past through my own silliness. Cox & Wyman had operated a printworks in Reading since 1777, and although this factory is nowhere near that old, parts of it still date from the early 1900s. Cox & Wyman are the oldest printworks company in the country and...
