Newcastle Industrial Heritage Association is pleased to offer personalized guided tours of the iconic sculpture "The Muster Point". This house-size industrial artwork was constructed as a collaboration by famous Newcastle sculptor Julie Squires and steelworkers in 1999, to mark the closure of the steelworks.

The whole structure, inside and out, has many stories to tell about the history of steelmaking in Newcastle.
Well-known retired steelworker Aubrey Brooks conducts intimate, heartfelt journeys around and within the walls of this unique place.

If you know any small group that would like to soak up some of the emotion of life at the steelworks, contact Aubrey to make a booking.
