For those who work in traditional industries in the UK 2015 was a year of loss and disappointment. The highly publicized closure of the SSI Steelworks in Redcar and the shutting down of Kellingley Colliery, the last deep coal mine in the UK, among others, indicates that we are gradually losing first-hand accounts and personal links to the industrial past.
In contrast, however, of the twenty-four new inscriptions on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2015 there was a strong industrial heritage component ranging from the Fray Bentos meat processing works in Uruguay to the Champagne landscapes of France and including Scotland’s Forth Bridge as a masterpiece of industrial engineering. This cohort of new Industrial World Heritage sites from Europe, South America and Asia join an existing range of successful and iconic sites such as the Ironbridge Gorge and the Zollverien Industrial Complex. After long years of being regarded as comparatively underrepresented on the World Heritage List it seems that Industrial Heritage has finally gained a foothold on the global stage.
In spite of this increased profile, however, the actual concept of ‘Industrial World Heritage’ is relatively under-researched.
