I have been amazed at some of the river clean-ups that have happened over the last 50 years or so, eg with the demise of industrial pollution. I know of the vast change in the River Taff, since the mining ended, but also I think much other work...

Nice connection of memories.

Posted on Tue, 31 Mar 2020
