    Cheers man. Yeah...will see how this one pans out. Work has started clearing the nearby Wharncliffe works so GBs could be next. Here's the advert:

    I looked at the advert so maybe there is someone out there is willing to convert or rebuild it into something (I hope) into a viable property. The buildings are still in good condition (some).
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    I hope so Hugh. It's been empty for 23 years so it's about time. So much work going on in this part of Sheffield so let's hope this encourages a developer to take the plunge.

    Sadly; as those of us who have been involved in any largish conversion/rebuild works will already know - the most cost effective way forward on a none listed derelict building, is to demolish and then start afresh. Sadly being old does not by necessity equate with 'good build quality', these old factory sites were built down to a price and to serve a particular function. Only rarely do they convert well into good dwellings/habitation at really affordable price levels. I do not like the idea of our old city centre mills and industrial sites becoming gated communities for the ultra rich.

    That's a fair point about build quality and difficulty of conversion leading to demo. However here GBs is Grade II listed.

    But this also demonstrates how listing doesn't work. Listing it doesn't make it any more viable to keep so it just gets left to rot as who's going to pay money to maintain an unusable and financially unviable building?

    Good on you for havin a revisit HD Got some great shots of how the place is doing.

    Im gutted it was sealed when I tried about 4yrs ago so still haven't seen inside. Lots of stuff has sadly gone missing from that place and turned up on ebay, even bits of no value go walk about
