Gary Brown, an officer at Brymbo Heritage Group, stated:

“We’re delighted with today’s news, a real show of support for the plans we have to re-connect people with the spaces that made our community.”

Brymbo Steelworks ceased operating back in 1990. At the peak of its activity, it employed well over 2,000 workers. Work on the site took place over a period of two centuries.

There was a machine shop at the location about a hundred years ago. Iron was worked on as well as steel. The creation of learning facilities should bring parts of the past to life. Engineering surveys, community engagement and design work will all be carried out in due course.

The Prince’s Trust is backing the transformation of the Brymbo Steelworks site. Local councils have also lent their support and it is hoped that a significant number of jobs can be generated by the collective effort.
