    During my last trip to France a parisien cataphil friend gave me the possibility to visit this not too big former limestone quarry uphill the Loire river, 300 km from Paris.
    Since it's located in a small village with only few strangers passing by, maybe private and with a gate to someones backyard, this place had/has to be visited in dark, late night and careful.
    I couldn't find any history, can only say that it had been a champignon farm for a while.
    It's not the most interesting, but was worth the visit.
    Have a look now, follow me the way around:

    access information: through the bushes then down these stairs...

    Much thanks to all who followed me 'till here, tell my thanks to those who left early for their good will please.

    addition:
    Most of this pics are lid with a 680lm, 120°, warm white (3000kelvin) smd-led spot/ selfmade lamp, powered by 8xAA. ( or in combination with a torch)
    Works fine for a few hours, but was a bit to bright for some close shots.
    There a lower lumen and wider angle would have been needed.
    Got a 180lm, 36° but broke it.
    Don't go less than 3000 kelvin, it's going towards looking red
    have a trial yourself
