Whatever happened to Aberfan? Cardiff

Watch this event

A precursor event to events, in 2016, that will surround the 50th anniversary of the fatal tip slide at Aberfan in 1966.

The speaker, Paul Maliphant, will look at the broad development history of the area, the arrival of mining in 1869, development of the mines, the disaster in 1966, tip reclamation, mine closure in 1989, remediation of the colliery site in the 1990s and social decline over the years.

He will then focus positively on the Riverside Project than he is managing for Merthyr Council now and the promise of a ‘new dawn’ for the area with a major residential led reclamation scheme.
