    Default Teeside Steelworks April 2017 timelapse


    Well I have been rather quiet of late, not even been on FB for months!!

    Anyway going through some old bits and put this together.

    The Teesside Steelworks was founded by Dorman Long in 1917 with the opening of the blast furnace. They were no strangers to the business as mid 19th century they were running thirty blast furnaces in the area. In 1918 the Cleveland works opened all that remains here is the coke works surrounded by a vast amount of baron land. Then in the 1940's they purchased the land between Cleveland Works and the blast furnace to build the Lackenby site.

    In 1979 the blast furnace you see here was built and the others were shut down. The largest in the UK and could produce over 3,000,000 tonnes annually.
    During this time Dorman Long become established globally in bridge construction. The most famous bridge they built was the Sydney Harbour Bridge but I would say the most impressive accomplishment would be the StorstrÝm Bridge in Denmark spanning 3199 metres and set on 49 separate piers.
    In 2015 the sites ceased all production with a loss of around 1700 jobs.
