Welcome to the History of Consett Steelworks

Welcome to History of Consett Steelworks, a resource for the memory of a community, a place and an industry.

Our aim is to gather the stories and the memories of the people who lived and worked in Consett during the time of the steelworks, as well as connect everyone with the towns industrial past.

We are adding new content all the time, and the gallery area is under constant construction. We hope to have plenty of content from the community to share.

The images below are representative of the content we have in our gallery pages. Take a look by clicking the Gallery tab to the left.
