University of Teesside - Reclaiming British steel's history

July 10, 2008

A £1.6 million project to explore, conserve and catalogue more than 600 feet of material relating to the steel industry in the Teesside area, between the University of Teesside and Teesside Archives, has been launched. Included in the British Steel Collection are the original plans for the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia, images showing the construction of the Forth Road Bridge in Scotland and the Auckland Harbour Bridge in New Zealand. Funding for the project comes from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
