Scunthorpe Steelworks § History
Scunthorpe as a town came into existence due to the exploitation of
the local ironstone resources, and subsequent formation of iron works
from the 1850s onwards. The regional[clarification needed] population
grew from 1,245 in 1851 to 11,167 in 1901 and 45,840 in 1941. During
Scunthorpe expanded to include the former villages of
Scunthorpe, Bottesford, Frodingham, Crosby, Brumby and Ashby.
Scunthorpe became an urban district in 1891, merged as 'Scunthorpe,
Brumby and Frodingham Urban District' in 1919, and became a municipal
borough in 1936.
The town appears in the
Domesday Book (1086) as Escumesthorpe, which
is Old Norse for "Skuma's homestead", a site which is believed to
be in the town centre close to where the present-day Market Hill is
The skyline of Scunthorpe, August 2016
Scunthorpe is located close to an outcrop of high-lime-content
ironstone (~25% iron average) from a seam of the
Lias Group strata
which dates from the
Early Jurassic period and runs north-south
Ironstone was mined by open cast methods from
the 1850s onwards, and by underground mining from the late 1930s. In
the 1970s the steel industry in
Scunthorpe transitioned to use of ores
imported from outside the UK with higher iron content. Underground
mining in the area ceased in 1981.
Scunthorpe was close to the epicentre (at Middle Rasen) of one of the
largest earthquakes experienced in the British Isles on 27 February
2008, with a magnitude of 5.2. Significant shocks were felt in
Scunthorpe and the surrounding North
Lincolnshire area. The main
10-second quake, which struck at 00:56 GMT at a depth of
9.6 mi (15.4 km), was the second largest recorded in the
British Isles. In 1984 a quake with a magnitude of 5.4 struck north
Scunthorpe Steelworks § Background and Geology
Scunthorpe forms an unparished area in the borough and unitary
authority of North Lincolnshire. The town forms six of the
borough's seventeen wards, namely Ashby, Brumby, Crosby & Park,
Frodingham, Kingsway with Lincoln Gardens and Town. The Scunthorpe
wards elect 16 of the borough's 43 councillors. As of 2018, 26 are
members of the Conservative party, and 13 are members of the Labour
party. The councillors form the charter trustees of the Town of
Scunthorpe and they continue to elect a town mayor.
Lincolnshire Council is based in The Civic Centre off Ashby Road
(former A159) next to Festival Gardens. It opened in 1963 as the Civic
Centre, and was the home of
Borough Council until 1996.
Briefly renamed Pittwood House, it was named after Edwin Pittwood, a
local Labour politician, who worked in the opencast ironstone workings
near Normanby Park. There are also offices at Church Square House near
Scunthorpe Market. Pittwood House has since been renamed as Civic
Centre due to the relocation of the Register Office from its old
premises in Oswald road.

Borough of Scunthorpe
In 1889 the area was included in the Lincolnshire, Parts of Lindsey
administrative county. Separate local government began in 1890 when
Scunthorpe local board of health was formed. In 1894 the local
board was replaced with an urban district council. Ten years later the
neighbouring townships of Brumby and Frodingham (including Crosby)
were also constituted an urban district. The two urban districts were
amalgamated, along with the parish of Ashby in 1919 to form a new
Scunthorpe urban district.
Scunthorpe received a charter incorporating
the town as a municipal borough in 1936.
Local authority boundary changes brought the town into the new county
Humberside in 1974, and a new non-metropolitan district, the
Scunthorpe was formed with the same boundaries as the old
municipal borough. The opening of the
Humber Bridge on 24 June 1981
provided a permanent link between North and South
Humberside but did
not secure Humberside's future. To the relief of its many detractors,
the county of
Humberside County Council) was abolished
on 1 April 1996 and succeeded by four unitary authorities.
Humberside districts of
Glanford and Scunthorpe, and that
part of Boothferry district south of the northern boundaries of the
parishes of Crowle, Eastoft, Luddington, Haldenby and Amcotts, now
compose the unitary authority of North Lincolnshire. On
amalgamation charter trustees were formed for Scunthorpe, and they
continue to elect a town mayor.
Arms of former municipal borough of Scunthorpe
Coat of arms
Scunthorpe was incorporated as a borough in 1936, it also
received a grant of a coat of arms from the College of Arms. These
arms were transferred to the new borough council formed in 1974,
and are now used by the town's charter trustees.
The green shield and golden wheatsheaf recall that the area was until
recently agricultural in nature. Across the centre of the shield is a
length of chain. This refers to the five villages of Crosby,
Scunthorpe, Frodingham, Brumby & Ashby linking together as one. At
the top of the shield are two fossils of the species Gryphaea incurva.
These remains of oysters, known as the "devil's toenails", were found
in the rock strata from which ironstone was quarried. The crest, on
top of the helm, shows a blast furnace. This is also referred to in
Latin motto: Refulget labores nostros coelum or The heavens
reflect our labours popularly attributed to the glow observed in the
night sky from the steelmaking activities.

Scunthorpe lies on an escarpment of ridged land (the Lincoln Cliff)
which slopes down towards the Trent. The surrounding environs are
largely low-lying hills and plains. Although the town itself is
heavily industrial it is surrounded by fertile farmland and wooded
areas. In terms of general location it lies a mile east of the River
Trent, 8 miles (13 km) south of the Humber Estuary, 15 miles
(24 km) west of the
Lincolnshire Wolds and 25 miles (40 km)
north of Lincoln. The town is situated at the terminus of the M181, 42
miles (68 km) from Sheffield. Nearby towns and cities are Hull
(18 miles northeast),
Doncaster (20 miles west),
Grimsby (22 miles
York (46 miles northwest).
Scunthorpe is approximately 10
miles (16 km) west of
South Yorkshire and 8 miles (13 km)
north by northwest to the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Scunthorpe steelworks (2006)
The Iron industry in
Scunthorpe was established in the mid 10th
century, following the discovery and exploitation of middle Lias
ironstone east of Scunthorpe. Initially iron ore was exported to iron
producers in South Yorkshire. Later, after the construction of the
Trent, Ancholme and
Grimsby Railway (1860s) gave rail access to the
area iron production in the area rapidly expanded using local
ironstone and imported coal or coke. Rapid industrial expansion in the
area led directly to the development of the town of Scunthorpe,
eventually incorporating several other former hamlets and villages,
located in a formerly sparsely populated entirely agricultural area.
From the early 1910s to the 1930s the industry consolidated, with
three main ownership concerns formed - the Appleby-Frodingham Steel
Company, part of the United Steel Companies; the Redbourn Iron Works,
Richard Thomas and Company of South Wales (later Richard
Thomas and Baldwins); and John Lysaght's Normanby Iron Works, part of
Guest, Keen and Nettlefolds.
In 1967 all three works became part of the nationalised British Steel
Corporation (BSC), leading to a period of further consolidation - from
the 1970s the use of local or regional ironstone diminished, being
replaced by imported ore via the
Immingham Bulk Terminal. Both the
Normanby Park and the Redbourn works closed in the early 1980s.
Conversion to the
Linz-Donawitz process ( or "basic oxygen" process)
of steel making from the open hearth process took place from the late
1960s onwards and was complete by the 1990s.
Following privatisation in 1988, the company together with the rest of
BSC became part of Corus (1999), later
Tata Steel Europe
Tata Steel Europe (2007). In
2016 the long products division of
Tata Steel Europe
Tata Steel Europe was sold to
Greybull Capital with
Scunthorpe as the primary steel production site.
As of 2012 the steel industry is the major employer in the area and
the largest operator within it is Tata Steel Europe; the number
employed in the industry fell from 27,000 at its height[when?] to
around 4,500 (excluding outside contractors) by the mid 2010s. In
addition to being a major employer the works and former ironstone
workings have or have had large scale environmental effects, including
air pollution and subsidence.
Industries associated with the steelworks include metal engineering as
well as a BOC plant.
The historical predominance of the steel industry made
virtual monotown; other industries in the town do exist. They include
food production, distribution and retailing. North of the town next a
waste management firm, Bell Waste Control, which services the majority
of industry in
Scunthorpe and the surrounding areas. On the Foxhills
Industrial Park, north of the A1077 northern bypass, are many
distribution companies, notably a large building owned by the Nisa
co-operative type mutual organisation which has its UK headquarters

The church of St John the Evangelist, in Church Square, was completed
in 1891 and consecrated on 15 April that same year. The church was
built, at a cost of £20,000 (equivalent to £2,000,000 as of 2016) on
land given by Lord St Oswald.
Built of Frodingham ironstone, and comprising a nave with five bays
and a clerestory, a chancel, north and south aisles, two porches and a
tower, it could accommodate up to 500 worshippers. It was designed by
J. S. Crowther in the perpendicular style. The original striking clock
was installed, in 1890 by William Potts and Sons of the Guildford
Clock Works in Leeds. In 1897 quarter chimes were added. The peal of
eight bells were hung in 1893, in memory of the Lord St Oswald. The
organ, built in London, cost £1,000.
The final church service was held on 29 April 1984 and the
building is now an arts centre.
