To the 'attic'

.

A recent collapse, the small hanging birch hasn't grown towards the light yet.

I wonder if it will last another autumn storm

This is the only remaining part of the drying sheds I could find, though the overgrown state of the terrain didn't help.

In 1975 H.J. Schoenmaker bought the factory at an auction. This man also bought, in 1964, cardboardfactory "De Toekomst" and other old industrial buildings. A foundation for preservation of the brickworks tried to buy the brickworks but Schoenmaker asked a much higher price than they could afford.

Until recently many old agricultural machines could be found on the terrain.
Schoenmaker used "De Toekomst" mainly for storing old machinery and scrap iron, which makes me wonder if he didn't do the same here. There have been plans for a brick museum, but obviously nothing came of it.

More recent plans involved making the furnace into a hotel and selling local products or building luxury houses. But since there is no permission to build houses here most likely scenario now is that the grounds will be given back to agricultural use and turned back into meadow, after 200 years of industrial use. The furnace and smokestack will stay, as they have monument status and the furnace furthermore houses bats during winter.


'Here develop...' But they don't know what they're going to delevop. 'Milau beheer bv' is owned by Bert Broeksema, solicitor and spokesman for Schoenmaker.
