Aberdare Folklore

Charlie Dumbar
There was a man called Charlie Dumbar was an extremely large person who travelled the local circus. When he died there were eight horses that had to pull the coffin to Aberdare Cemetery. Rumours are they could get a coffin large enough so they buried him in a grand piano.
Another saying relating to this folklore was when mothers saw their children eating too much they said if you are not careful you will get to the size of Charlie Dunbar.
