Aberbargoed

A Memory of Aberbargoed.

I was born in Pill, Newport, Mon, in 1938 and with my grandmother Charlotte Selina Jane Rossiter used to visit relatives in Aberbargoed. As in other memories, I shall never forget passing beneath the endless drums in the air transporting waste from the mines to the tips that to a child resembled huge mountains, the memory of miners' cottages and backyards with their outside toilets and the zinc bath hung on fences or the rear of the houses will forever be in my memory. Later in life I became a firman on the GWR and worked many early miners trains out of Newport to Aberbargoed and Tredegar. I cannot remember any relatives now but if anyone remembers my grandmother I would love to hear from them.
