Good Evening Everyone,

 

Just a quick intro to myself, my name is Ben, and im the Photographer at B T Frewin Photography, hence my profile name, and i currently live in Rotherham.

I am pretty much new to the whole urbex scene, but have a ton of experience with my camera and love a good explore.

Im just reaching out to fellow rotherham/sheffield urban explores/photographers who wouldnt mind meeting oneday to explore new places and exsisting ones and hopefully get me fully into this.

 

If so, drop me a messege.

 

Cheers.

Hi, Welcome to Oblivion State. 

 

I think there are a few members from round that way, hopefully some of them might reply to this thread. If not, have a search for places on here, most of them can be done without someone needing to show you if you apply a bit of lateral thinking.  :-)

Hi Ben, welcome. What type of photography do you like? I've been around Sheffield in my travels in the past. I'm sure you'll bump into some of the locals if you get out and about.

Hi Ben and welcome to Oblivion State :thumb

 

There's quite a few members on here from your area so best advice i could offer would be to get a few locations done and get amongst it on the forum and show people what you're about, and before you know it people will be forthcoming with sharing info and meeting up etc.

 

In the meantime make yourself at home and if you have any questions just shout mate :thumb

Whilst we appreciate that you are eager to find places to visit and photograph, it may be an idea to do a little research rather than asking publicly if these places can be named. We are all here for the same reasons and we are all happy to help where we can but it is highly unlikely that someone is going to provide you with a 'shopping list'. Few places are walk ins, most require careful planning, early (very) mornings and some research on the location/security/access. These cannot be accomplished unless you visit them yourself and check somewhere out :)

 

If you need any help with any of those points then feel free to ask :)

      So now is the time you start seeing this type of thread pop up. Favourite cereals, dog walking moments, cheesey tunes etc...
       
      Favourite derp should have its place
       
      For me, this is pretty easy. After a while out of exploring I finally got my feet the taste of mould and pigeon shit they had so desperately been craving. I got out once, nothing crazy, but it was out.

      Everyone has a favourite explore. One persons shitty little derp is anothers treasure trove ( in more ways than one sometimes...)
       
      What is your favourite, and why?
       
      I'm an asylum / hospital lad, but mine has to be Fletchers paper mill.
       
      It ticks all the right boxes. Not easy to get into, not completely f00ked, and lots of stuff left.
       
      My only visit was with DHL, and he recommended it to me while we were at the 28DL manc meet. I wanted Whittingham, and whilst I wish I had seen it before It went, boy was he correct!

      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.

      History

      As far as history goes for this particular property, it is sparse as it is nothing more than a fairly modern residential building. One newspaper based in Barnsley reported that traffic came to a standstill as a result of a fire at the property on Rotherham Road. Two fire crews attended the scene and spent two-and-a-half hours extinguishing the blaze. A second source suggests that the fire was caused by a lit candle, and that a woman had a lucky escape. The woman concerned apparently suffered slight smoke inhalation but was otherwise in good health. The property itself is an average sized two-storey house. Its notable features include an indoor swimming pool and a spiral staircase. 

      Our Version of Events

      Of all the places we could end up in, we ended up in Barnsley. After looking at the town hall and wandering around the town and its meat and fish market for half an hour it didn’t take long to run out of things to do, so we decided we might as well look for an explore. However, the best thing we could find, unfortunately, was an old burnt down house. We tried a couple of other spots beforehand but didn’t have much luck overall. 

      The house on Rotherham Road is exactly what you might expect for a residential explore – mostly empty and damp. As noted above, though, it does feature an indoor swimming pool where you can try your hand at floating across on doors someone has thrown in. Needless to say, we weren’t very successful but it was certainly worth a quick go. The second bit of the building that’s worth a look at is the spiral staircase in what we think was the former living room. This room was the most photogenic part of the explore so we spent most of our time in here. Going up the staircase turned out to be a complete waste of time because this is where the fire was. There is very little left of the roof and most of the floorboards look rather fucked. Compared to the mansions and castles of Belgium and France, then, this explore is a big disappointment, but it does kill fifteen minutes if you happen to be passing and fancy a swim. 

      Explored with Ford Mayhem.
