We are delighted to announce The Yorkshire Man of Steel project has been awarded Heritage Lottery Fund support!
The project began with a simple idea to create a landmark artwork that would act as a beacon for the region and a catalyst for change. The 32 metre high stainless steel sculpture and Interpretation Hub will be built on the border of Rotherham overlooking the M1. It will honour the people and places that forged a lasting legacy in Yorkshire and highlight the new technologies and specialised manufacturing that is helping to transform the region.
The project is supported by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and sponsored by a growing group of companies known as the Team of Steel. The entire project will be built with the latest innovative design and manufacturing techniques, using local skills and materials.
The Yorkshire Man of Steel will be seen by millions of people every year and provide a lasting economic and cultural benefit for generations to come. Advanced design and development work has already started, and work on site is expected to begin soon!
We invite you to support the Yorkshire Man of Steel with a suggested donation amount from £20. Add your name – or someone you know – to the Heart of Steel, and you will receive a specially commissioned Heart of Steel badge and personalised certificate.
The British Heart Foundation will receive 10% of all Heart of Steel donations to power life-saving heart research.
