Visited with Dweeb, and some French mine explorers.

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

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.

Does that sandwich packet in the first pick say "ploughmans"? Great pics, sorry if it's a dumb Q but what did they quarry there? Sandstone?
