'Greater Bargoed' comprises Bargoed, Aberbargoed and Gilfach with a combined population of approximately 12,000. The area has a proud mining heritage. In recent years, much of the area has seen quite radical land reclamation and landscaping further to the demise of the coal industry.
For the purposes of the local IWN, the nearby village of Deri in the lower part of the Darran Valley has been included in the Greater Bargoed area.
