In this series we will be providing a platform for recollections of Consett, its steel industry and the community that made it from the many contributions we have received either via Facebook or by direct email.
All our stories are very lightly edited for typos and text flow only, and are really conversational. It is great to hear the people sharing their story speaking as you read, and that is what we are trying to achieve.
We’d love to hear your stories and share your memories and images. If you have anything you’d like to share please get in touch here.
