People of Ravenscraig

During its 35-year working history there were many people who crossed back and forth through the main gates at Ravenscraig, each bringing their own unique personality and skills set with them.

At its opening in 1957, Ravenscraig had a new management team. Colville’s Magazine featured the new team in one of its issues.

Some of these names of people who worked at or were connected to Ravenscraig will be known to many. Others represent a small section of the vast workforce that was Ravenscraig Steelworks:
