King Street Energy pipeline maps

King Street Energy (part of NPL Estates), planning natural gas storage in 10 tanks set in the salt caverns south-east of Northwich, have plans also for 2 water pipes through Cheshire countryside in order to vacate the cavities..

As they're unable to use water from local rivers, they propose supply and return pipes to the River Mersey. One to abstract water, one to return it with brine. Their website ( features a high definition map; at 40MB rather a pig when you're on dial-up.

So we've taken 4 parts of the map and made low-definition copies for you - choose the one you're interested in.
