There has been a steelworks in Brymbo, near Wrexham, for over 200 years. The site is now being redeveloped, but some original areas remain – officially heritage areas, but very little seems to be happening to save them.
Deep in a wooded valley, a loading platform.
In a stone building with a dodgy floor, I found the pattern store.
Some giant crucibles sit on a little bit of railtrack.
The engine was missing from this…
The two blast furnace chimneys.
And a giant wooden pattern as tall as me – the mould for the inside of a crucible I think.
