Lived Inn Aberbargoed 1965 2008 - a Memory of Aberbargoed.

I was born in Cwrt Coch Street, Aberbargoed in 1965. I remember I used to sit in Chris the cobbler's shop for hours chatting, his shop was a mess but he was good. When I was about 10 I was sat on the pavement waiting for my mam to come home from work, when the work bus with the pit men came down the street and went into the wall and knocked it down on top of me. I was taken to hospital in Aberbargoed and was lucky I was only bruised. I went to Bedwellty Comp from 1977-1982. I remember Gatties and Hathaways, Williams papershop, the old tip which is flattened now, we used to have great times when we were young, I miss it all.
