Members of Newcastle Industrial Heritage Association have taken the first steps to have the significance of the large steel sculpture - The Muster Point - more widely recognised as an icon of our steel heritage.

At the 90th anniversary of the opening of Newcastle Steelworks, held at the Muster Point on 2 June, members decided to continue to maintain and promote this important artwork. An open day and members BBQ will be held at the site next month. Anyone interested in caring for this or other parts of our region's industrial heritage should make contact with this association.
