Nostalgia 1956 1980

A Memory of Aberbargoed

I lived in Aberbargoed from 1956 until I got married in 1980. I loved the youth club on Pant Street. Started going when I was 12. We had some great dances there which usually ended up in a massive fight! I often wonder what happened to some of the people I went to school with. I can remember the buckets going across from Bargoed to Bedwellty. We used to play over the field under the buckets. My brother told me how he used to ride them when he was a young boy, he fell from the girder once and fractured his skull! No health and safety those days and no computers, we were out playing until dark sometimes.
