Consett Steel Works – A Year of Anniversaries and Commemoration’s

by | Sep 7, 2020 | Community, History, News

2020 sees a number of major anniversaries and commemoration’s for the Consett area and the  Consett & District Heritage Initiative (CDHI). On 12th  September 2010 the CDHI opened its doors for our first ever exhibition which saw more than 1000 people attending at the Lodge in Blackhill & Consett Park. The date was of a major significance as well being exactly 30 years from the closure of Consett Steel Works. It was for this very reason that our group was initially founded to help commemorate that monumental date.  After that event the CDHI was cemented and took up our place in the area as an archive and also to help spread the proud heritage of our area for now and future generations.
