Details

Sculptor: Colin Melbourne. This sculpture of a steelworker illustrates the struggle of the Shelton Bar steelworkers to retain their livelihood and preserve the future of their works. Unfortunately they lost their fight and after more than 100 years of continuous operation the blast furnaces were shut down on 23 June 1978 and 2,000 workers were made redundant. Rolling works continued at the works but the whole works were closed in April 2000.
