    Visited with Dweeb, and some French mine explorers.

    In usual fashion, the first stop was for a drink and some food... check the tables...

    We then split for a while to go for an explore and take some pictures.

    Tons of potatoes...

    No French quarry is complete without a rotting Renault van or two...

    and talking about vans, it's not very often you have to use one as a right-of-way...

    Very nice. Potatoes are a bit random though - any idea why they are there?

    The local farmer, who maybe owns the place, uses the quarry as a cool dark place to store them, there was tons of potatoes in there.

    Again nice, and brilliant shots, look like they took a fair amount of time to set up.
