I stand humbled and corrected, it was indeed une minoterie GG :good:

Built in 1926 from the very best quality concrete and asbestos on the site of a previous moulin dating from 1870.

The idiots even put out some false news during their electoral campaign with the intention of putting off any other bidders:

Le prix de départ (50.000€) a fait naître des idées, en pleine campagne des élections... publiques. Marie-Ange Lecocq a découvert que la vente du Moulin Damay inclura aussi le remboursement de trois hypothèques, respectivement de 58.478€, 164.643,84€ et 4.431€. Soit un total de 227.552,84...

Absolute rubbish as any investor will know, when you buy at auction or from the liquidator you are not liable for any of the debts of the previous proprietaire. They were ridiculed in the press and would not even admit their error.

It looked nice in its day, its a great investment for someone because after spending 10 years & honky tonk millions on etudes the ville will have to sell it again.

Its the worst building in the best street in the best possible location.

I never dreamed of buying a watermill and then one came free with my property. Buy one, get one free. It wasn't even mentioned in the sales blurb. Handy thing to have, but try getting permission to use the water from the river. Nightmare.
Absolute-ly..I have become comfortably numb (with ice it's nice)

That's OK, nice of you to say so.

Well spotted that man :good:

Known (not so) affectionately by the Perronaise as the Verruca.

Did you frequent my favorite shop KAKI a little further on?
Yes, I have been in the Kaki shop but I'm sure it was in smaller premises at the time. Over many years I used to be a regular visitor to the Camping but I haven't visited Peronne for some years. Looking a GSV 2009 I see there is a Lidl near the Port de Plaisance but I used to use a supermarket opposite Lidl which now appears abandoned so my last visit was before 2009.

As an airfield enthusiast I also visited the Aérodrome d'Albert-Méaulte around 2007 hoping to see some unusual aircraft.

Before we bought in the Gard we had intended to buy a property in the Drôme. One house we looked at formed part of the town walls; it was totally unsuitable for us but if we’d bought it we would also have become the owners of a private cemetery. It dated from Huguenot times, when Protestants were denied burial in Catholic cemeteries and would be buried on land owned by the family, if they had any.

That was the inauguration year of the new aéroport I think, nothing of interest has ever been their other than the occasional Beluga rotation and last week the first visit of the supersize-me Beluga XL.

Peronne used to have its own airport at Doignt Flamicourt & not the one now shared with St Quentin at Estrées Mons.

For you :good:

Be warned if you have an interest in crashed WWII aircraft then the site can be addictive, I will join the association when the CV19 restrictions are properly behind us.

P.S. What is a GSV?, dont answer, I have worked it out!

Could you share, in that case? Just for the rest of us who don't know.

I believe that he meant Google Street View.
