    Well this place has been done time and again, here is my slant. Anyone whose has driven the A421 and various other roads on the outskirts of Bedford will most certainly have noticed what at first glance appear to be 2 incredibly large sheds on a hill of to one side...welcome to the Cardington Hangars, built in the early 1900's and rumoured to have cost the lives of 20 or so workers during construction these huge structures dominates the skyline and they still attract people from far and wide to view them from arms length.
    Even when you see them from the perimeter fence you still unaware of their true size, and its not until you actually get right up next to them that you find yourself awestruck by the shear size.

    You can just about make out Mimi at the door gap which gives you an idea as to the size of the place

    Unfortunately on my exit I seriously sprained my ankle and it pretty much ruined an otherwise great visit...I truely appreciate all my co-visitors for their help and concern.
