Morwenna Jeffery: Aberystwyth

I remember hearing someone relate the history of Aberystwyth beach some years ago. I was told that the beach used to be one of the most popular in the country. One day it was decided that the wooden boat ramp should be replaced with a stone ramp. After it was replaced, the stone poisoned the sand, changing it’s colour, putting many people off visiting. I don’t know how accurate the story is, but it’s always stuck in my head.
