Brightside Ln, Sheffield S9 2RW

Tour led by - Forgemasters Technical Directors

We had a great tour of Forgemasters last week but sadly we weren't able to take any photos inside so you'll have to make do with this one of us all in our PPE instead!

It was great to see the processes of steel manufacture and watching the steelworkers manoeuvre and manipulate a giant piece of red hot steel into different shapes was quite something to behold. We would recommend anyone who didn't get a place this time to keep an eye out for a repeat tour in the future.

Many thanks to Steve Phillips (Technical Director Melt Shop), Martin Kearney (Technical Director Forgings) and Chris Gorman (Technical Manager Foundry) for their tour guide skills!
