Sheffield-Leeds Tour

This visit began with DavyMarkham, hosts of one of Europe's largest and most impressive engineering workshops, capable of designing and manufacturing very large equipment for quarrying, metal processing, mining and tunnelling, nuclear and defence and infrastructure sectors, which included for instance working on Tunnel Boring Machines for the Channel Tunnel. The company is the one of the UK leaders in the design and manufacture of high level and intermediate level nuclear waste packages. This visit then travelled to Leeds, home to one of the country's most impressive collections of armour, the Royal Armouries, to learn about the rich history of metal forming in producing arms and armour from around the world.
