So after about a year since we last went to Sheffield we got a couple of re-visits in this weekend and since I wasn't too active on here the last time, i thought a report was due.
Founded back in 1836, George Barnsley & Sons Ltd was initially located on Wheeldon Street, Sheffield. They were able to move to the Cornish works in 1849, which was a much larger premises. George Barnsley & Sons Ltd specialized in the manufacture of files and other tools for use in the shoe making industry and grew to become the worlds leading producer for shoemakers. Unfortunately George Barnsley did not out-live the advancements of the 20th century, rendering the traditional tools obsolete, and was open until 2003 when the site finally closed.
It had been about a year or so since my last visit here and has definitely been a location I have wanted to see again for some time.
Not much had changed from what I could remember, other than it being much less overgrown outside and the floorboards having just a little more give to them which always makes things interesting. Nothing too exciting went on while we were there and we wandered in and out like it we owned the place
Visited with @Hydro, @Fatpanda and two other non-members
As always, Cheers for looking!!
