Morning all, 'twas a chilly day when we decided to fire up the Standard and give it a quick test drive prior to heading off to an old-car meet-up. Today's upload talks about the Std 8, further changes planned in our four-wheeled menagerie, and then covers our drive out to the aforementioned car gathering.

I would like to say I knew what the building was for... but I can only guess
...something like an airship?

The FB page probably says where they were/are. at a guess because the don't resemble Cardingto I don't think they are British and I think Cardington are probably the only ones we have left anyway.
So I would go for German , possibly WWI zeppelin sheds or Post War, commercial, pre Hindenburg sheds.
The ydon't seem to have an American vibe for their marine Blimps.

The photos I took were from the same airship shed in Normandy that Rick and Harley visited in their most recent YouTube video but they show a model reconstruction of how the site would have looked when operational.

As Peter says, it's one of the places we visited in our recent mini-break driving around Normandy.
