I was shocked that Brinsworth strip mill is still working. While I was doing my Process control apprenticeship I had to work at all the various locations across British steel Rotherham and Brinsworth strip mill was one of them.

The 6 arc furnaces at the Spear were closed down many years ago, the Ramp, the central workshops and Ickles have all disappeared.
