Everyone is invited to learn more about Corby’s steelmaking history.

Corby Heritage Centre’s current exhibition - Stewarts & Lloyds, the Early Years - highlights the arrival of Corby Steel Works, the migration of workers to the town, the homes they were offered and fascinating facts behind steel making.

Corby Council’s Heritage Champion, Cllr John McGhee, said: “Corby is proud to have its very own heritage centre where people are free to explore some of the fascinating facts of the town’s past.

“Corby’s steel-making history not only invokes strong memories in many of Corby’s residents, but also sparks an interest in the town’s newest residents or visitors. This exhibition gives everyone the perfect opportunity to find out more about the steel town that Corby once was so I hope to see many people going along to learn more.”

The heritage centre, 75-77 High Street, Old Village, is open from 2pm-4pm Monday to Friday and from 9am-12.30pm on Saturdays. Entry is free.
