    Default The Green Lane Works Sheffield Jan 2014


    The original Green Lane Works were established in 1795 by Hoole and Company, manufacturers of ornamental stove grates and fenders. Business flourished with products winning international acclaim in the Great Exhibition of 1851. In 1860, Henry Hoole, then Lord Mayor of Sheffield, wanted to have a factory that reflected the prestige of his company and set about rebuilding the site. This included the construction of the imposing entrance arch on Green Lane, now listed at grade II*. Designed in a classical style, the gateway has a distinctive clock tower, topped with a weather vane and a central pediment and frieze with panels depicting Greek gods Athena, god of arts and crafts and Hephaestus, god of blacksmiths. Successive metal-related businesses have occupied the site since the 1930s, making products such as razor blades and agricultural machinery. In the 1980s the site was merged with the adjacent Eagle/Horseman Works and used for the production of motor parts until production ceased in 2007.
