Manchester Monument Concept Art

In July, a 7.5 tonne lorry arrived here at the Ironworks to deliver thousands of weapons – including knives and guns – which have all been collected from the streets of Manchester. All weapons were collected as part of the Greater Manchester Police’s (GMP) ‘Forever Amnesty’. The knife and gun banks used for the amnesty were designed and created here at the Centre and have been utilised as a continual programme to encourage and support the public to surrender their dangerous weapons in order to clear the streets of violent and aggressive behaviour. Manchester are the first location in the UK to develop and commit to an ongoing amnesty project like this, with all collected weapons to be used to create an anti-violence monument for the city.

BIC Archery

After being based at Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital (RJAH) in Gobowen since 1957, we are proud to announce that the Croesoswallt Archery Club, which were previously called the Overton Archers, are now officially based here at the British Ironworks Centre! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, RJAH have had to make a few changes to ensure the safety of their staff and patients, meaning that the archery club could no longer be based on their grounds. But, when they approached us about homing their club here at the Centre, we were absolutely thrilled and couldn’t wait to have them with us!
