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

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.

Nice photos. When we went there last we failed to find most of that stuff.
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...
