Scottish Iron & Steel Works History
Colvilles / British Steel / Corus
- this part of the website is under development -Dalzell, Hallside, Lanarkshire,
Glengarnock, Blochairn, Wishaw,
Ravenscraig only until I can find time, and web space, to edit and update the
information I have on the other Works.
This website contains descriptions and photographs of Scottish iron and steel works. It concentrates mainly on those that existed within the Colvilles group and on into British Steel and Corus.
It contains most on the two remaining steel works which still survive in Scotland - Dalzell and Clydebridge. Dalzell is the works David Colville started, in 1871, and it is still rolling hot steel today. Clydebridge no longer rolls steel plates but operates in conjunction with Dalzell for the heat treatment and quenching of steel plates.
As I worked at Clydebridge works, I have been able to collect more about its' history, and Tom Gorman has generously supplied information and photographs he has collected about Dalzell works.
If you have any information, photographs etc. on any other Scottish iron or steel works that you would like to share, and help keep alive our industrial heritage, please contact me at the e-mail address below, or through the guestbook link on the Main Site home page.
