Dobby The House Elf's Grave Could Be Removed From UK Beach

A grave marking the resting place of Dobby from the Harry Potter franchise could be removed.

A survey commissioned by National Trust Wales has asked the public for opinions regarding whether the grave, which is located on Freshwater West beach in Pembrokeshire, should be removed or moved to another location.

The beloved character’s death scene in Deathly Hallows was filmed at the same beach and the grave has been left as a tribute since 2009.

Potterheads have flocked to the picturesque spot to see for themselves where the elf is buried in the films.

Tributes are usually left by thousands of Harry Potter fans, including flowers, dolls, laminated messages and painted stones.

National Trust Wales is concerned that the popularity of the location might not be ‘sustainable in the long term’ due to the number of items left for the CGI elf.

Bosses at the National Trust are also concerned that the large crowds that visit the grave could damage the beach.

The consultation reads: “Freshwater West is much loved and over time has become increasingly popular.

“Access to nature and the outdoors for all is vitally important but the increase in visitors has added pressure on the environment and facilities.

“This does not feel sustainable in the long-term, without negatively impacting this special place.

“Those who care for it, enjoy it and live locally want only the best for Freshwater West. To help understand the issues and consider what options there are for the future a public consultation has begun.”

Dobby is voiced by Toby Jones in the Harry Potter film franchise. In 2018, JK Rowling issued an apology for killing the character in the final book in the series.

In the film adaptation, Dobby dies in Harry’s arms after Bellatrix throws a knife at him. His last words are Harry’s name.

The survey closes on 31st May 2022.
