    20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of STEELWORKS Closure  View Printable Version  
    Thursday, March 19 2020 @ 03:38 AM
    Contributed by: bobcook

    30 September 2019 was an important day in the Newcastle Steelmaking history.
    It was commemorated by two open days at the site. Sunday 29th and Monday 30th September saw hundreds of past workers and their families visit Delprat's Cottage, the Muster Point sculpture and the Steelworkers memorial. Closure Manager Lance Hockridge returned to cut a commemorative cake to recognise the occasion. It was good to see so many past faces.

    An important first step in NIHA's new project - FORTRESS NEWCASTLE, was to visit another of the unused military sites from WW11.
    Fort Wallace will eventually become open to the public and will make an exciting stopover on the 'Fortress Newcastle Trail'.
    We will soon start featuring some of the amazing stories of how the 'Newcastle Industrial Hub', protected by 'Fortress Newcastle', was such a critical part of the war effort to save Australia.
