Audeville and Cherbourg Normandy 24th
Like Land’s End – Audeville is out on the tip of a peninsula.
Windswept the day we were there and rugged – simple and untamed.
Cherbourg – now a big industrial city with many modern buildings and perhaps more high rise than most parts of France. Nothing much over 12 storeys even here.
With an artificial harbour dating back many centuries, Cherbourg is an important sea port. In WWII it was re taken by allied forces and became vital supply chain link when an oil pipeline was laid from England.
Now the harbour has a cruise ship terminal and ferries going to a number of UK and Irish ports.
Also the port area houses a museum devoted to submariners and undersea exploration with a collection of vessels demonstrating the progress of submarine vessels and associated technology
