Hello Again
On my journey around he Midlands I'm now in Kingsbury. It all started with a Water Park
and look what it has got now. Also well know for its fuel storage tanks and still every day
fuel is sent by pipeline from the Pembrokeshire Coast to Kingsbury.
Some Romanions are in custody charged with drilling the pipeline and stealing thousands
of gallons of fuel oil. They could have blown a lot of  Pembrokeshire to pieces.
The pipe line will be moved when they build HS2.
Lets hear more about what was the Water Park.
Gerald.

When I worked in Kingsbury between 69 to 75 the water parks were the sand and gravel quarry.  I remember whenever we got heavy rain the road used to flood and effectively blocked the main road from Birmingham to Kinsbury village.  Drilling into oil pipelines is the favourite pastime in Nigeria, this costs the oil companies vast amounts of money both in lost product and clean up costs.
