Home » About » Teesworks Heritage Task Force
Informed by stories and ideas from former steelworkers and people living across the Tees Valley, the Teesworks Heritage Task Force has been set up to capture and celebrate the unique history of the former Redcar steelworks.
The role of the Teesworks Heritage Task Force is to consult and explore ways to capture, record and recognise the cultural, economic and industrial heritage of the Teesworks site in Redcar which has been part of Teesside’s long and rich iron and steelmaking heritage. In addition to this, the Taskforce will make recommendations as to how this heritage can make a meaningful contribution to the sustainable economic growth of the Tees Valley.
The Task Force is co-chaired by Redcar MP Jacob Young and Kate Willard OBE, who has a wealth of experience in heritage and arts. It is made up of local politicians and industrial heritage experts, including Tees steel industry veteran John Baker, Teesside steel historian Tosh Warwick and a representative of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.
Teesworks Heritage Taskforce has now submitted its recommendations to capture and celebrate the history of the former SSI steelworks site. You can find its report in full here.
