The History of Consett Steelworks project team are delighted to share and encourage all to visit this display by our heritage partners CDHI
Brian Harrison from CDHI writes
The CDHI have put up a display commemorating the closure of Consett Steel, 41 years this month.
The display can be seen at the front of the Lodge in Blackhill & Consett Park, when the building is open, for the next few weeks.
We plan on doing rolling displays at least once a month from now. If you get a chance to have a pop in we hope you enjoy
