Brinsworth strip mill Sheffield Rd

I decided to cycle to where I worked at British Steel Rotherham on Sheffield rd in the 1980’s, to capture some pictures while it still exists.  I was shocked that Brinsworth strip mill is still working.

While I was doing my Process control apprenticeship I had to work at all the various locations across British steel Rotherham and Brinsworth strip mill was one of them.  Brinsworth strip mill is the only part of the plant which is still working.  The 6 arc furnaces at the Spear were closed down many years ago, the Ramp, the central workshops and Ickles have all disappeared.  This was all part of Steel Peech and Tozer.
