Bargoed

A Memory of Bargoed

My memories of Bargoed are going to the farm now known as the rafa club and shooing the cows across the road from the barns which are where the new police houses are opposite bargoed institute and getting a pint of milk from the farm straight from the stone sill which contained the milk churn cost 3 pence old money one half pence new , the farm was fully working then until the black path was built over by bungalows above the farm 1950,s at the back of police houses was full of muck in their sheds a herd of about 30 to forty cows there the old ambulance station was just above the cow sheds.
