France Mine des abris november 2018

Recommended Posts

 

It's been a long time that I posted something here. Missing the time for the editing of the photo's. This  was my last explore and it was an underground adventure with the same partner of all the underground explores. It's was an iron mine that closed several decades ago like many others in that neighbourhood.It was a nice walk to find an entrance (not the main entrance ). It was inside warmer than outside.

This time only one level explored but probably there are more entry's because there was also some kind of elevator (not found thou but other explorer did). There were a lot of collapses places. All the timber was parished  and the metal well rusted. Also some cracks in the ceiling. Nice that there were some painted street names on the wall (some in German, other in French). There was every ware since of life ( fungi's, in white and yellow). Animal bones, one bat and animal excrements that turned in something fluffy by the fungi that were  growing on that). For the rest the mine was well stripped of almost all the rails and cables.

But never the less, a nice trip.

Tnx, Lightning is done with 2 or 3 flashlights with more or less the same color temperature. Strange to see so much collapses after only a few decades. The grey stuff on the ground  was like bad cement with to much sand in it. .

      This villa with other outbuildings used to host a guest house.
      n the meantime, this building has been abandoned to decay.

      After that my companion in crime did  some great research in this one we went to visit this mine An explore to the deep underground of an abandoned slate mine. Unfortunately, the lower section were completely flooded but still a lot to explore, with wading trough knee deep water.
      Strange to find a water powered generator down there (it is not a pump). We stayed here for several hours.

      I couldn't find out very much about this castle. It was built in 1821, I don't know when it has been abandoned. In 1841, the proprietress financed various improvements in the village, like the extension of roads.
       
      Exploring the castle was partially quite tricky. Large parts of the floors, ceilings and roofs had already collapsed. A lot of the few remaining floors had holes, most of the stairs were soaked and unstable due to rainwater and moisture. For this reason, only a few areas of the buildung were still reasonably safe accessible. In the end, in this advanced state of decay, the castle is beyond saving, I think.
