Other Site Characteristics

Il s'agit de deux anciennes carrières souterraines, creusées dans le tuffeau. Ces carrières ont servi de champignonnières, mais sont aujourd'hui sans usage. En dehors des risques d'effondrement d'une partie du réseau à terme, la principale menace est liée au dérangement pendant la période d'hibernation. Néanmoins, des aménagements anti-intrusion ont été réalisés qui semblent efficaces. Ce site fonctionne également probablement en réseau avec les sites intégrés au périmètre Natura 2000 Loire Aval (ensemble du coteau de la commune et des communes voisines).

4.2 Quality and importance

Prieur est un site souterrain très étendu, avec un réseau complexe de galeries. Le site est parmi les 10 plus importants au niveau régional et considéré d'importance régionale selon la méthode de hiérarchisation nationale (Roué, 2004). Plusieurs entrées existent, ainsi que des cheminées d'aération probablement utilisées par les chauves-souris. Le site est géologiquement instable sur plusieurs secteurs. Concernant les caves du château, le développement est moins important mais le site sert de lieu de report d'une partie des chauves-souris de Prieur selon les hivers. Le développement souterrain exact est mal connu, et non projeté en surface. De même, l'usage par les chauves-souris (circulation...) est inconnu. L'ensemble de ce réseau de sites est prioritaire au niveau régional dans le cadre de la déclinaison du Plan d'Action Chiroptères.
