Description:The giant steel works at Shelton during its heyday. After the war Shelton was at full capacity and employed thousands of men, producing some of the finest steel in the world.
In the foreground can be seen rows of coal wagons. Coal fed the huge blast furnaces, and these would light up the sky at night like a sunset. The site was cleared in 1986 and played host to the National Garden Festival in that year. It is now a retail park.
