ww2 fuel depot, in swanpool cornwall.
jan 2011.

At midnight on May 30th 1944 German aircraft attacked the Swanpool Fuel Depot near Falmouth. During the raid a bomb struck one of the large tanks, causing it to rupture and allowing an immense river of ignited petrol, travelling with great rapidity, to pour down the hillside towards the cottages at Swanpool.
