    Happy New Year all.
    These were the first urban exploration photos I ever took, which were on holiday in France with my family back in August 2010.

    About the site:

    Unfortunately I don't speak much French, so it was difficult to gather a lot of info regarding this site. All I do know is that it is situated on the Quiberon peninsula, and that it appears to still be in use by the French military, as I spotted some soldiers near the buildings on on the of the occasions that I tried to go and explore the place. Fearing being surrounded and having to rely upon 'Je suis desole" and "Pardon monsieur", I came back the next day, with my camera.

    The site consists of a small railway line, which goes in a rectangular loop, and leads to what looks like some kind of shed. Possibly an engine testing track... there is also a tower and a few outbuildings, including one which looked like it may have been residential. All of the site has been badly vandalised and is in generally poor conditions, but it was a half decent explore all the same :)

    Here are the photos:

    The tower:


    Looking upwards into the tower- next time bring a rope ladder :mrgreen:


    Inside the main building near the railway:


    Some sort of engine shed?


    The railway:


    The residential building somewhere behind the tower:

    A row of what was probably showers...

    Some graffiti (anyone speak French?)


    A nice little mural:


    Anyway, that's all for now. I'm hoping to do some new explores in the coming year :)
