Historical Background
'I do not seem to have much historical information on the site. Seemingly it was, at one time, the West Hartlepool Steel and Iron Co, but subsequently became part of the South Durham Steel and Iron Co. The works probably closed down after the opening of the new Redcar works in 1979.'
[Stafford Linsley's annotation]


  • 1980s   Works closed down.
