Rubbish

In the old days, before poor people had much to throw away and before bin men were invented, one Dinas solution was to throw rubbish over the edge of the cliffs. There can’t have been much:  waste food would have gone to the pig, anything that would burn would have gone into the stove, clothing would have been endlessly recycled and so only pottery fragments lay in the brambles until we discovered them many, many years later.

Here are some of the pieces we found when walking along the coast path between Pwllgwaelod and Aberbach.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
