Bessemer Convertor
The Bessemer Converter at Kelham Island Museum is one of only three converters left in the world. It was used by the British Steel Corporation in Workington until 1975, and was brought to the Museum in 1978 as an example of the revolutionary steelmaking process which first took off in Sheffield.
