France Atlantic wall (bits of) 2014

Recommended Posts

Atlantic wall.

Discovered these whilst driving west of Calais whilst waiting for my ferry back to the UK

No idea what this used to be - there are a few of these in the landscape & most have been taken over by the local farmers.

      This old chapel in the middle of the forest was the first stop during my last trip to France on the penultimate weekend.
      Only a small and overgrown path leads to it. If you don't know the location, you'll hardly find it; even from the winding country road below the chapel, it's barely visible. Inside were still several beautiful things - dusty plastic flowers, small Madonna statuettes and images of saints, as well as two rosary necklaces with crosses.
      In a broken stone the date 13th of April 1870 was engraved. However, I don't know when the secluded chapel was actually built.

      It was a very long trip on this day - 23.5 hours on the road, 1480 km driven... But it was worth it.  
      In the afternoon we reached our third place, this old house on the outskirts of a small village. From the outside it was already pretty overgrown. Nevertheless, access wasn't difficult.
       
      Inside were old furniture, various dolls, a piano, and everything surrounded by beautiful decay.
      Only the smell of a decaying fox in the entrance area wasn't really pleasant...

      In early 2018 we visited one of the new tunnels of Paris metro which for the moment (May 2018) is still under construction. Recently I was told that this place is no longer accessible due to active works that doesn't stop even at night, so I will publish some pictures. Btw, we managed to get in only from the 2nd try - there is a security guy walking around the construction site (on the street).
       
      The new tunnel is 2km long. We walked till the end and on the way back checked out the end of the active line. There were two trains. Soon we heard some noise (like if someone'd open a door) and left the place.

      My take on Prison 15H and from what I gather there is going to be a fair few from this place coming to a forum near you Soon!
      Thanks to Phantom Bish and Camera shy for the Intel. Cheers guys.
      Seems we where out the same weekend as Mr Bish but missed him by a day..
      Early morning start and a Euro tunnel trip purely to do this place and then home intime for tea..This is an advantage of living 45 mins from the Euro tunnel, met many euro explorers while in the place and some well kitted up graffers on the way out.,Other than that no problems where had,even the Gypo colony in the car park wasn’t an issue..
      Enough bollox from me and here’s 15 of the 230 odd I took 60% of them I was happy with but no one wants to see a apic heavy report of the place!!
      Explored with Sx-riffraff,Obscurity,Spaceinvader and Urban Ginger
