The Kings Wood estate has a large green space in the centre. My children were born in 1990 and '93 and I was impressed by the amount of apparatus and space avialbe for them on the estate at that time.

WOW!! Scrolling through the map there shows how much has been demolished eh! Have'nt been back2 Corby for about 15 years or so! Got brought up from age of 6-17 in houses+flat on Culross Walk(flat) Northbrook and final house was on Grantham walk...loved it in Corby and especially on the Kingswood Estate, attending all 3 of their shools throughout my youth days! Its a shame 2 see how much things are changing in Corby lol.

I was just wondering the name of the poet that wrote the poem at the top of this page - 'People of Corby'. It's brilliant by the way.
