Established in 1780, Ebbw Vale steelworks became the largest steel mill in Europe by the 1930s, when steel became a commodity during World War II. Upon the mill’s closure, due to a merger, in 2002, the building was set for demolition, but instead became part of a £350 million regeneration project that allowed the site to keep almost all of its buildings.
