The Size of the Consett Steelworks

When I moved to the North East and just outside of Consett the works had closed and been demolished

Hard for me and probably for many to get a sense of the size of the area the Steelworks covered. It was vast from Blackhill over to Templetown down away through to the Grove and beyond

How would you describe the size?

Is there data with actual sizes- Peter our Mapping Co-ordinator maybe able to answer that and with others is working on recreating the “works” in a virtual way
