This was a difficult one to find the way to. With a few cans of soft drink and an assistant, I got the car to (what I thought was) a close spot, then began the walk up to the site. The track was getting overgrown the further up we were walking. Once we had managed to get to the site, the views were outstanding.

One of the photos shows the view of the town of Bargoed itself (Bargoed is having its roads sorted out with diversions all over the place!)

After taking the photos of it, we found an easier way down!

Bargoed was originally a BBC landlord site which entered service with BBC 1 & 2 in January 1973 to serve
11,000 people. ITV was added on 25-May-1973, with S4C available from the 1-Nov-1982 launch. DSO was on
3 and 31-Mar-2010.

At Bargoed the trough aerials previously used for transmission have now been replaced by more conventional panel aerials.
