Started to demolish Redcar furnace today. Almost 6 years since the last oven was pushed at Redcar coke ovens and the works fate was sealed. Flew past to be honest. Lads I know from there are scattered all over the place grafting now.

Does it make you sad, mate? My mam and dad worked in the offices all their lives, my granddad in a foundry on Dock Street. Still seems terribly sad to me. Bank of Scotland alone received an 80bn bailout!

Eighty billion pounds. One bank

Definitely, it was a shithole, conditions were shocking, gas, dust, chemical fumes and working mostly outside in all weathers. Everyone I speak to says they’d go back tomorrow given the chance. Strange but true. :gaz:

I did a lot of contracting in there, hated the place. The dust, the smells, the fuck abouts getting permits. The mad discrepancy in quality control at the different canteens! Redcar was a culinary desert, had to drive to concast or beam mill for a decent bacon butty!

If it wasn’t for steel there’d be no Middlesbrough or Teesside probably, not that you’d care.
