Celebrating the heritage of steel and coal
Heritage Lottery Funded

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

The Heart of Steel is ready! Thanks to the amazing collaboration of two Sheffield companies and a team of highly skilled fabricators. read more Add a name today and become a part of history in the making!

 

The Steel Man began with a simple idea to create a landmark artwork that would act as a beacon for the Yorkshire region and a catalyst for change. Over the last 8 years it has expanded to embrace education, training, heritage, culture, and the arts. The project has attracted huge  support from local companies and thousands of individuals from around the world.

The 32 metre Steel Man will be built on the border of Rotherham (overlooking the M1), honouring the people and places that forged the region. A multi-functional Interpretation Hub – part funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund – will sit alongside the sculpture and include an exhibition space, café , and shop. Schools and other groups will be able to use the space to learn more about the heritage of the region and the emergence of the new technology sector.  Months of preparation has gone into preparing a planning application for the Hub which has now been submitted  to Rotherham Council.

The Steel Man is a true grass roots project, supported by the generosity of the public and a team of dedicated professionals. We still need funding to make this future icon a reality and here is where you can help; the Heart of Steel will sit inside the Steel Man with 150,000 names engraved on it; donate today and add your name – or a loved one – and become a part of history in the making!  The Heart, which is being built now and will be unveiled to the public at Meadowhall in 2018. Every donation also helps the British Heart Foundation save lives. We are committed to helping BHF and we will be announcing another exciting development about our partnership in the near future.

Meanwhile, advanced discussions  are underway with an international steel company who will become a key partner for the Steel Man. More about this amazing development will be announced soon!

Keep supporting the Steel Man and play your part in building an icon that will be seen by millions every year and create a lasting economic legacy for the region.
