Consett Steel Remembered
Display of photographs presented by Consett and District Heritage Initiative
The Lodge, Blackhill & Consett park
Until Friday 8 October
Consett steelworks dominated the skyline for 140 years, until its closure in September 1980. As the largest single employer in the town and surrounding district, it provided a livelihood for many families and influenced the economic and social life of the area for decades. This selection of photographs from the archives of the Consett and District Heritage Initiative provide a visual reminder of the huge presence which the works as it was commonly referred to, had in the town of Consett and its communities.
The photographs can be viewed during opening hours, free of charge
