Pit Head Baths

Before the baths were opened colliers had to wash at home usually in an old tin bath that his wife or mother had prepared ready for him at the end of his shift.
The Bargoed miners had the luxury of hot showers before many others in the valley

Also in this photo you can see the foot bridge over the colliery railway.
Prior to this bridge being built residents who wanted to go between Bargoed and Aberbargoed crossed the railway yard (unofficially) which was very dangerous.
As kids we would stomp over the bridge then pass the baths and up the long steps to Bargoed.
