This abandoned textile bleaching factory looks like it has been abandoned a long time ago. It was build in 1879 and in 1978, the factory went bankrupt. Sobelta bought the factory grounds and sold them to Artifex in 1990, who used the sheds for storage. Unfortunately, at this time, some parts of the protected steam engine were stolen. Not a single roof is intact and many parts look dangerously unstable or are inaccessible due to collapsed roofs. The protected old steam engine and electric generator are still there, although they are in a terrible shape. In 1986 there was an attempt to make this protected piece of industrial heritage disappear, part of the steam boilers has been scrapped in this operation that was supposed to go by unnoticed. Someone found out however and all was put to work, to stop the demolition work. The demolition was stopped but the damage remains.
