This is looking from Bargoed over to Aberbargoed - you can see the reservoir left of centre in the picture
(just right of the steam)
Also just in view on the left of the picture are three houses from Chapel Street. The pine end of which you will see in later pictures painted "Terracotta" !!
In this picture which is after the closure you can see the start of the conveyor belt that took the slag off to the new tip - I am still on the look out for pictures of the old buckets that went across Commercial Street.
If anyone has one please let me know by placing a comment.
This picture was taken when the colliery was in full production and provided work for most of the men in the Bargoed & Aberbargoed area.
Another view taken from Bargoed showing the offices and West View Villas the official's houses in the background
