Nice one !  A couple of those photos from the 1980's look like they could have been taken in the 1880's

Here is one of the rolling mill in action at the Shepcote lane plate mill. All closed down now.

I don't know how many remember the stainless steel bison at the Shepcote lane site. It was mounted on a large concrete block on the the Avesta site (Outokumpu), and clearly viewable from the M1 motorway.

I last saw it over ten years ago  in the yard around the back of  Magna. It's a while since I was round there, so don't know if it is still there.

Here are some photos of the bison being removed from the original concrete block. I can imagine that it may have been a bit of a distraction for 'rubber neckers' on the M1. It's not often you see a bison dangling from a crane.

I've not been around there for a while but Google Earth is still showing the bison in situ at Magna dated April 2019.

The bison was moved from the steel plant at Shepcote lane before it closed.

 

The next place I saw it was at the back of Magna-outside. Daryl's post indicates it was still there in 2019. 

 

I'm not aware that anything has happened to it.
