The famous Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia was constructed on the other side of the world, in Middlesbrough, by local steel giants Dorman Long. The steel used to make it was produced at Skinningrove from local ironstone and the words ‘Made in Middlesbrough’ are stamped on its side. It is the world’s largest (but not the longest) steel arch bridge with the top of the bridge standing 134 metres above the harbour. The Bridge opened in 1932.
