'Thanks for such an inspirational facility that you have established to support appreciation of the heritage of the Steel industry. I visited Magna, from Denaby Main Primary, with my Y6 children Tuesday, 27th September 2016.

We were truly spoilt by John's Living Steel workshop- the children enjoyed the science-based experimentation, mixing of ingredients, handling of objects and the highlight, for us, was to watch a true forger at work. John shared, not just his skill with, but his heart for, Steel.'  Lynn Mathers, Denaby Main Primary School.
