It is a common belief that steel is no longer really made in South Yorkshire. Despite what looks like an increasingly precarious future for the industry, the reality however is that more steel is made here than ever before, albeit in an industry that has evolved radically over the past few decades. Very high quality steel is now produced by mulitinational companies such as Tata Steel, which is headquartered in Mumbai. Andy Brown and Nathan Gibson visited their plant on the outskirts of Rotherham to document the process of contemporary steel making.
