Event description

Description

As part of this year’s Heritage Open Days, Wessex Archaeology offers a rare opportunity to visit the crucible cellars of the former Titanic Works, Malinda Street/Hoyle Street, Sheffield. This event will take place on Friday 8th September and will provide the chance to explore a once commonplace and important part of Sheffield’s industrial past.

The extant building includes a nationally rare crucible furnace with two end stacks. The former works is a Grade II listed building and during the redevelopment of the site in 2008, two previously unknown crucible cellars were unearthed, adding to the known cellar beneath the listed structure.

Wessex Archaeology will be conducting four 1 hour tours of the crucible cellars, all free of charge, with each tour accommodating up to six members of the public. The tours will include exploring all three cellars with information about the steel making process, the history and development of the site and their significance within Sheffield.

Tours will need to be booked in advance due to limited space within the cellars. Please be aware that the tours are not suitable for those with impaired mobility or children under the age of 8 years. Suitable footwear (walking boots) is recommended. Any other protective clothing required will be provided.

Come along and delve into Sheffield’s rich industrial past.
