Aberfan, 1966

Poem by Julian Jordon:
At 9.15 am on Friday, October 21st, 1966, at Pantglas Junior School, Aberfan, South Wales, the children had just returned to their classes after singing "All Things Bright and Beautiful" in their assembly. A colliery spoil heap above the village collapsed, engulfing the school and 20 houses in the village. 144 people died in the Aberfan disaster, 116 of them school children. About half of the children at the school and five of their teachers ere killed.
