The Aberfan coal tips have been removed, and a memorial garden now stands on the site of the disaster which killed 116 children and 28 adults.
The brutal force of the coal slurry engulfed the Pantglas school, seen here, killing 116 children and 28 adults.
The rows of graves in Aberfan are a reminder of the number killed by the disaster.
£1.75m was donated to Aberfan by well-wishers, which was used to build a memorial garden.
Tributes to the children and adults of Aberfan adorn the memorial.
The coal tips may have been removed, but Aberfan still lives in the shadow of the Mynydd Merthyr.
