One of the most tragic moments from the Harry Potter universe was described by “Potterheads” as the moment when the house of the elf Noldus was killed.
Even the author of the books, J.K. Rowling, she said she was sorry for killing the house dwarf.
In 2018, she tweeted, “This year I apologize for killing someone who didn’t die during #BattleofHogwarts, (periodical note: Battle of Hogwarts), but gave his life to save the people who wanted to win it. I’m of course referring to the house of the elf Noldus.”
It’s that memory again. This year, I apologize for killing someone who didn’t die while #Batlov HogwartsBut whoever gave his life to save the people who won it. I refer of course to the home elf Dobby.

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 1, Noldus dies in the arms of Harry Potter. The last words of Pete Elf are “what a lovely place with friends”.
Home to a variety of species
The place where Noldus takes his last breath was filmed on Freshwater West Beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales. There, fans set up a memorial site in honor of the famous Harry Potter character.
The memorial is said to have sparked concern, and there has been talk of removing the memorial, out of fear that the popular tourist attraction could have a negative impact on the area and wildlife.
The area must be protected, plus it houses a number of animal species – including lizards, orchids, and rare birds that nest on the ground.
After eight months of work, spare parts National Trust In the report, what they believe should be done with regard to the sustainable development of the region. The National Trust writes on its website that it is the largest conservation and conservation charity in Europe.
It can endanger wildlife
Among other things, the volunteer organization believes that the piles of socks, which were placed on the grave of Noldos, could be harmful to the animals living in the area.
The “Potterheads” socks you left are dedicated to honoring a house elf. Harry Potter tricks Lucifus Malfang, the owner of the Noldus, into giving the sock home a sock. This means that Noldus no longer belongs to the Malfang family, but has been released. The stocking Noldus wears until his death, symbolizes his friendship with the young wizard.
The socks weren’t just left behind. In addition, he placed several stones painted with the same text that Harry Potter had written on the memorial stone to Noldus – “Here lies Dobby, free elf.”
Items such as socks, ornaments, and paint residue from painted gravel can enter the marine environment and the food chain, endangering wildlife, the National Trust wrote in the report.
However, they have suggested allowing Noldos’ tomb to remain, but are now asking tourists not to leave things behind.
– The fund only asks visitors to take pictures when visiting the tomb, they write.
