    Carrieres-sur-Seine is a village west of Paris which I visited by car. Finding there was ok, but getting back was a real horrortrip. Paris suburbs by car suck.
    The only thing I could find on this quarry was this link : ..: LUTECIA Centre de documentation [L'industrie de la pierre à bâtir à Carrières-sur-Seine] :..
    My French is extreme small, so I leave it to you, to find some infos in there.
    I don't even know the name of the quarry I have been in, sorry, just that there had been a champignon farm in there.
    All quarry was white painted and plastic boxes, etc to be found. Some areas with lots of sand and boxes of wood, a champignon plantage too,
    25 meter of plastic sacks on the earth, looking like soldiers
    I had a map to find the entrance (thanks OT for your support, was me a real help) and one for inside, which I did not understand any little bit.
    Couldn't find the entrance for quite a while, so had a fine visit over the onground roof of the quarry, a big dump for stones, earth and any different shit, overgrown by bushes,
    but with some interesting shafts, etc.
    At least I found it just 200 meter from my car, at a place I had not gone first as there were earthworks done with machines.
    They were stopped then, when it got late afternoon. I visited most of the quarry by night, but would recommend it by day, when you have some nice lighting by open shafts.

    1-3 shafts, ventilation or whatever

    4 looking downwards, interesting cut through the ground; not too much firm material

    A couple of shafts to be seen on ground, holes in the earth, would not really trust this area, might be "La Defense" in the background.

    It's a strange place.

    First time we went was to a massive party there. Second time was more relaxed with Oxs and Dirty and their kids. Been there a few times since but it's not fired my rockets as much as it used to.

    Definitely didn't see this...
