    Default George Barnsley & Sons, Sheffield - 08


    Explored this place at the back end of last year, but a bit of a media storm blew up about our exploration so we pulled our pic's off Flickr and never did any reports, think enough time has passed now so here we are.


    History
    George Barnsley and Sons Ltd was founded in 1836 and specialised in forge filing and cutting tools for leather workers and shoe makers. One George Barnsley was Master Cutler in 1883.
    George Barnsley and Son is listed in the 1837 Sheffield directory as a file manufacture situated on Wheeldon Street, The 1849 listing records a move to Cornhill and then in 1852 to Cornish works Cornish street. They had by this time also increased their product range to include steel files and shoe & butchers knives. They are again listed in 1944 as manufactures of files and blades, shoe knives and leather workers tools.
    In the 1948 listing the business had become George Barnsley and Son Ltd.

    Sorry about the amount of pictures, there was just so much stuff, I took over a hundred I think.

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Awesome shots there Mex, every one of them.
    Really like the calculator, the meters and that office window - hope they get saved.
    Looks like a mighty fine explore - why the media stuff?
