The ‘super’ Heart of Steel is ready, thanks to the amazing collaboration of three Sheffield companies and a team of highly skilled fabricators. The Heart will be unveiled at Meadowhall in Sheffield soon!read more… Add a name today and become a part of history in the making…



The Steel Man began with a simple idea to create a landmark artwork and visitor centre that would act as a beacon for the Yorkshire region and a catalyst for change: The 32 metre high stainless steel sculpture will be built in an area steeped in industrial history and is now at the forefront of a new era in advanced manufacturing technologies. The Steel Man is a true grass roots project supported by public appeal, Rotherham Council, Sheffield Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund, and a group of companies from around the region.

Make a donation today and play a part to help the Steel Man succeed in its ambition to become an icon for the Yorkshire region.
