Photographer's Note

Can not miss it. In the area of Henin-Carvin, the cone of the heap of the pit Sainte-Henriette dominates throughout, and always surprises the visitor who discovers this "mountain" peeled, located at the crossroads of highways A 21 and A1, and foot which trains pass at high speed.
Some see it as the gateway to the Nord - Pas de Calais ... It is at least as a monument.
Even if it turns green, the extremely steep slag heap is not yet colonized by trees and shale land and furniture are prone to landslides and rockfalls. The summit seems inaccessible ... Climbing is dangerous. Not surprisingly, the site which receives no development, is not open to the public.
Impossible to ignore, however, he, with his 136 meters above the natural ground, is 166 m above sea level: the highest of the chain after those heaps of 11-19 at Loos-en-Gohelle.
