  • Hi peoples, welcome to my photo report of Aubin-Hennocque quarry, Mery sur Oise, north of Paris.
    Val de Oise, Oise valley, is an area with a lot of quarries.
    Hennoque is a big one of 40 ha, but I heared there are bigger ones.
    First a quarry, then occupied by the Germans in WW2 and used as V2 rocket storage or something like this, that's my history to it. Theres a lot interesting stuff in the net, but most in French, often related to different quarries, which makes things difficult.
    Have a look yourself, this page seems not bad
