    Arrow George Barnsley & sons Ltd, Sheffield. Dec '12


    ..George Barnsley & Sons Ltd..
    ..Sheffield..

    ~~~~~~~~~~





    George Barnsley was apprenticed into the filemakers trade in 1823 by his mother, Anne, who had been widowed. He was signed in to the apprenticeship to a Thomas Wing of Sheffield for seven years and two hundred and seventy one days. He later went in to partnership with his brother and they established themselves as one of the worlds leading manufacturers of tools for the shoe making and leather trades. The company grew throughout the 19th century and the Barnsley family were held in high regard in the thriving city. Eventually the outdated factory and production methods fell victim to the increasingly competitive import market and the growing costs of production, finally closing in 2003.
    ~~~~~~~~~~

    Had the pleasure of a leisurely mooch around this lovely ole place while doing the rounds in Sheffield a few weeks back.
    Some of the floors are a bit dodgy and theres plenty of 'pigeon soup' about, but didnt mind that at all, lovely atmosphere and plenty to see still... BOSTIN!!
    There was even an 'access trail' to guide us in, very thoughtful of someone. :)
    Splored with NK, who once again overcame her fear of heights and scaled the big ladder... Nice one!!

    On with some pix

    Thanks for looking...
    YOU AINT SEEN ME... RIGHT!!

    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
