Welcome to the Stocksbridge Town Council website.

Stocksbridge is a small town situated approximately 10 miles north of the City of Sheffield, nestling at the edge of the Pennines and the Peak District National Park and is the home of Tata Steels, the British manufacturer for Aerospace Steels products.

The Steel Valley Project is based in Stocksbridge and is active in the Upper Don Valley Zone of the South Yorkshire Forest serving an area that is approximately five miles wide and ten long. Bordered by the Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council boundary to the North and the Peak National Park to the South it is a fascinating mixture of rural agricultural environment with small settlements along side the river to the suburbs of Sheffield.

Stocksbridge is however a town of more than 13,000 people that is dominated by the TATA Steel works that in the last 20 years has seen a reduction of its work force from 7,000 to 600 people.

As such there are a range of problems facing the communities living and working here, not least those presented by health, employment and geographical isolation. However there are the positive aspects of a very active base of community groups seeking to counter these problems and lead Stocksbridge and the surrounding area into a new millennium. The Steel Valley Project is working with these groups to support projects that develop mutual objectives.

Partners in the Steel Valley Project are:


  • TATA Steels,
  • Bradfield Parish Council,
  • Stocksbridge Town Council
  • Sheffield City Council
  • South Yorkshire Forest Partnership

The Steel Valley Project actively works in collaboration with the above as well as other agencies and organisations to achieve mutual objectives.
