IN MEMORIUM

Fifty-Two years ago today, at 9:30 in the morning, a colliery waste tip slid down a mountainside and slammed into the very heart of the mining village of Aberfan, near Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales.

The landslide engulfed a farm cottage, killing all its occupants, twenty houses and the Pantglas Junior School before coming to rest.

144 people died that day, and 116 of them were children.

Rest In Peace.
