In the dark welsh valley,
On the mountain side,
Lay the little children
Close to where they died.
Their little lives are ended
Before they reach their goal,
Tender little children
Have paid the price of coal.

We will never forget – Aberfan 21-10-66

  1. We remember Aberfan well. Everyone in the UK mourned those innocent little children. The slag heaps had been left unattended and built too high. One of them came down on a school. There was wide condemnation of the private owners of the coalmines who had failed to make the slag heaps safe. We were just one couple out of thousands who collected for the bereaved families. Sad times.
