Arenberg Pit

Interesting
The disused pit offers a real insight into the Anzin Mining Company. The architectural harmony of this group of superb industrial buildings (1900-1961) is remarkable. Three headframes loom over the site. The colossal extraction machinery, now fallen silent, and the collective amenities are impressive to behold. The site is also being given a great second wind through its new vocation which focuses on audio-visual activities and digital media.
