Bargoed is the largest shopping centre in the Upper Rhymney Valley, serving the surrounding communities of Aberbargoed, Gilfach and Pengam. Up until 1977, Bargoed was the hub of the coal industry in the Rhymney Valley and these former colliery sites now form the county borough’s newest (and largest at 100 hectares [250 acres]) country park. The material from the former Bargoed coal tip has also played an important role in creating the new retail plateau and park & ride facility.

The first phase of the multi-million pound Greater Bargoed Community Regeneration Scheme was completed in the summer of 2009.  A crucial component is the new road ‘Angel Way’ and also significant improvements to the south and south east of Bargoed. These have resulted in an increase in the catchment populations.  Notably, the new hospital, Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr now lies within the 10 minute zone.  This improvement has provided Bargoed businesses with new opportunities and increased the accessibility of the town to visitors.  View the isochrone map

The second phase of the regeneration scheme was completed in December 2013  with the opening of a Morrisons foodstore and construction of seven retail units on the plateau.
