The University of Teesside and Teesside Archives have joined forces to apply for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to save the locaL_histBritish Steel Archive for future generations. Local people are being asked to get involved to ensure that the project can meet the wishes of the community.

The British Steel Archive Project will be formally launched by Redcar and Cleveland MP Vera Baird on Saturday 16 September at 2pm at the Main Hall of the University of Teesside’s Brittan Building. (Entry to the hall is via the Main reception in the Middlesbrough Tower, just off Borough Road, Middlesbrough).

Do you remember the glory days of the region’s steel industry? Did you, or a family member, work for British Steel or its predecessor, Dorman Long? Do you have any memories or photographs you’d like to share?
