This 200 Year old site closed earlier this year with the loss of 150 Jobs, Victoria Ironworks was acquired by William Henry Wesson in 1898 and he ran the works under the name of Wessons.

Recently the works had been running as a steel mill rolling bar for automotive, hydraulic and engineering uses from steel produced elsewhere. Its unusual to find quite this much of a rolling mill left intact which makes this a great place to visit.
