Old Mill Hotel, Bargoed

The Old Mill Inn stood on Bridge Street in one of the oldest parts of Bargoed at one time known as Pont Aberbargoed.  The inn was built in 1739 and known locally as ‘Yr Hen Dafarn.  Name derives from an old corn mill which stood nearby with landlord, Daniel Lewis being the last miller.  Lewis was also the nephew of Evan James who wrote the Welsh national anthem.

By 2010 the hotel was closed and was destroyed by fire two years later.
