Delves Lane Primary School | Consett Steelworks Heritage Project

In recognition of the 40th anniversary of the closure of Consett Steelworks we delivered a project where we looked back at the whole history of the town of Consett, and the huge influence the steelworks had on the local community. We had guest speakers who talked about their lives working at the steelworks as well as inviting local people in to school to discuss the impact the closure had on the town. The children felt that the project had given them a true appreciation of their local history and they gained a whole new sense of pride about the town where they live.
