Witness accounts

This section is largely reproduced from the definitive website, The Aberfan Disaster by kind permission of the site author, Iain McLean. It is lengthy and has no graphics. However, as you read the simple accounts of people’s experiences, you cannot fail to be moved.

I’ve created seven pages for you to walk with people of Aberfan and their experiences on that fateful Friday morning in October 1966. Click on the links below to begin your journey.
