Town of Bargoed
Bargoed is a town with a population of about 13,000 situated in the Rhymney Valley in South East Wales. It lies about 18 miles north of Cardiff and 16 miles north-west of Newport, some 10 miles south of Merthyr Tydfil and about 10 miles southwest of Pontypridd.
Until 1974, Bargoed formed part of the urban district of Gelligaer in the old county of Glamorgan. From 1974 until 1996, it was part of the district of Rhymney Valley in the new county of Mid Glamorgan. In 1996, Mid Glamorgan was abolished as an administrative county, and the district became part of the county borough of Caerphilly - a unitary authority (initially such part of Caerphilly remaining within the purely ceremonial, or preserved, county of Mid Glamorgan, but in 2003 the entire county borough was placed in the ceremonial county of Gwent).
Bargoed Jewish Community
A Jewish community existed in Bargoed in early part of the twentieth century.
