    There has been a steelworks in Brymbo, near Wrexham, for over 200 years. The site is now being redeveloped, but some original areas remain - officially heritage areas, but very little seems to be happening to save them.

    Deep in a wooded valley, a loading platform.

    In a stone building with a dodgy floor, I found the pattern store.

    Some giant crucibles sit on a little bit of railtrack.

    The two blast furnace chimneys.

    And a giant wooden pattern as tall as me - the mould for the inside of a crucible I think.
