The Steel Man is a true grass roots project which began with a simple idea to create a landmark artwork that would act as a beacon for the Yorkshire region and a catalyst for change. Its supported by Rotherham Council, Sheffield Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund, and a group of companies from around the region. Advanced discussions  are now underway with an international steel company who will become a key partner for the Steel Man. More about this amazing development will be announced soon.

During its development the project has expanded to include education, training, heritage, culture, and the arts. The landmark sculpture will be built on the border of Rotherham (overlooking the M1), honouring the people and places that forged the region, and signposting the emergence of the new technology sector .

We invite you to support the Steel Man and play your part in building an icon which will be seen by millions every year, creating a lasting economic legacy for the region.
