Steel Remembered

“First World War - Steel Remembered” is a joint project led by Linc Cymru (Linc), the organisation behind the restoration of Newport’s Lysaght Institute

The project will set out to uncover the real-life stories of the Orb steel workers who marched off to war in 1914-1918 those who came back and those who are commemorated by the Orb Steel Works War Memorial. Through a combination of special events, workshops and outreach programmes, the project team, which includes the local community, will reach out, providing opportunities for people of all ages to take an active part in the research, learn new skills and create a digital archive that can be shared across the world.
