Abbeystead victims remembered

Have your say

Villagers in St Michael’s will mark the 30th anniversary of the Abbeystead disaster this Sunday with a special Act of Remembrance.

At 9.15am on Sunday morning they will gather in their parish church to recall the 16 victims of the tragedy.

Candles will be lit by the Abbeystead memorial – a simple brass plaque engraved with the names of those who died at or following the explosion at the Abbeystead water pumping station on May 23, 1984.
