stagnant water is huge health risk
The Mighty Ensley Works It's Beautiful During Sunset Hours I Love The Smoke Stacks I Used To walk the bridge every day from school
Interesting to see starting at 1:12 what appears to be  a hot metal mixer that some how survived the scrapers torch.  Perhaps it was too high on that concrete pedestal to easily remove!  Anyway, this piece of machinery was used to store and blend several heats (blast furnace tappings) of molten iron.  The mixer would be tilted on its side and the molten iron would be poured into a huge ladle.  That ladle itself would be emptied more than likely into an open hearth furnace to be refined into steel.  The rows of smoke stacks in your video are either from a row of open hearth furnaces or soaking pits.   The mixer and the stacks would have been respectively inside and part of huge buildings that were once part of this steel mill site.  Thanks for sharing shots of the very last remnants of what was once an enormous steel making facility in the Birmingham, Alabama area.
It's amazing what can happen in two years (I think that's when you posted this video?)! My friend and I went there just yesterday and so much as changed from what it looked like in your video. There was SO MUCH more debris and brush and stuff to get through and there were places where it was just completely swamped and everything. I couldn't even believe when I saw that (mostly) clear field in your video because it's COMPLETELY taken over from Mother Nature. We had to do a lot of hacking away of vines and crawling under things and planning each step! Thanks so much for the video!! I love to see how everything changes over the years!!
Can you tell me where exactly this is located? I want to take engagement pictures here, but I can not find this on a map anywhere!
also this feels like a setting for a fallout game
this is amazing i live in Alabama and never knew we had any old abandoned places like this lingering around
Excellent video!

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
