  1. I had a few days off last month so decided to go to Dyson. As you can see it was quite foggy which made the whole thing feel pretty creepy, solo explore as well. lotta fun. I will be doing a revisit at some point and hopefully with a drone The building, in Sheffield, closed its doors in 2006 and since then the gutted remains have been left to rust. The Dyson Group, founded by John Dyson, opened their first factory in Sheffield in 1834 at the tail end of the Industrial Revolution, before later moving to this site. Using new software to edit videos so should be a big improvement in quality!
  2. This was the last stop on the trip yesterday. Very big place with some interesting bits in there. History The Dyson Group was founded by John Dyson in Stannington back in 1834. Dyson was born in Sheffield in 1777 and was baptised in St Peter's, Sheffield on the 28th of May 1777, he died on the 24th of December 1851 and is buried in Christ Church, Stannington. The business was a success from the word go, creating ceramics for the local steel industry and homes. Very little can be said in the way of history as Dysons would go on successfully creating ceramics using the same traditional method of gas fired kilns right up until 2005 when the Stannington works was closed due to the gas bill becoming too costly to justify. The Dyson Group does still continue to produce ceramics in their Totley factory, just up the road.
  3. Dyson Refractories The Explore Visited here after finding George Barnsley's frustratingly sealed and a quick recce of the Crown Court proved fruitless too due to the quantity of humans in the area. Visited with Session9 and Fekneejit, good to meet you Steve The place itself appears to be quickly demo-ing itself and I was quite surprised to find some nice little bits and bobs still there. The History (shamelessly stolen from Fekneejit who stole it from ProjectMayhem ) Founded by John Dyson who began mining clay and making bricks in the early 1800s and from its inception the business prospered. The 1834 Sheffield trade directory lists – “John Dyson – Brick Maker, Stannington†which indicates that he ran the business on his own. However, by 1838 the business was listed as “John Dyson and Son – Black clay miners and firebrick manufacturers, Griffs House, Stannington. The son referred to was John his eldest son. Dyson’s were manufacturers of refractory material, ceramics for the steel industry, they also produce firebacks and other household ceramic bricks for the likes of Agas etc. They have also been know to sell clay for use in well dressings The Pictures 1/2. Double stack to begin with.. 3. Bricking it.. 4. This mofo liked his granny smiths.. 5. 6. Some puddle reflection shots from the dispatch area.. 7. 8. 9. Little green kitchen.. 10. 11. 12. 13. 500Gb Hard-drive 14. Racks of shit.. 15. Knob-Control.. 16. Furnace Jobbies.. 17/18. As always, thanks for looking and feedback always appreciated
  4. Visited with hamtagger & Session9, good to meet you guys I wasn't going to post a report, but I figure I got enough pics, though I didn't actually take any of the buildings, oops. Hopefully hamtagger will post some pics too so you can see what the site itself looks like... History, (nicked from proj3ctm4yh3m's site) Founded by John Dyson who began mining clay and making bricks in the early 1800s and from its inception the business prospered. The 1834 Sheffield trade directory lists – “John Dyson – Brick Maker, Stannington” which indicates that he ran the business on his own. However, by 1838 the business was listed as “John Dyson and Son – Black clay miners and firebrick manufacturers, Griffs House, Stannington. The son referred to was John his eldest son Dyson’s were manufacturers of refractory material, ceramics for the steel industry, they also produce firebacks and other household ceramic bricks for the likes of Agas etc. They have also been know to sell clay for use in well dressings Looking battered, not sure if the big collapsed building was like that last year, & pretty sure the chimney didn't just say "_yson" in the last report I saw. All a bit manky, but the odd nice bit.
  5. John Dyson opened this Sheffield Site in the earl 1800s. Mr. Dyson had previously begun his career by mining clay and making bricks. The business was highly successful and went on to manufacturer refractory products for the Steel Industry and Household Products such as Firebricks for Agas and Stoves. Despite their best efforts; the staff could not save the failure of Dysons and it closed in the mid noughties. The site itself was half demolished when we arrived and sealed well with Heras fencing welded to RSJs and bolted through walls. Visited with Mookster on a Northern Road Trip: #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 More At: https://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/sets/72157644693286491/
  6. Another site from mine and Landie's brief trip Northwards...looking at other reports from here we missed a fair bit internally but a mix of the overwhelming amount of welded together heras fencing, quite a lot of exhaustion and a pair of very very sodden feet belonging to me after I took an early bath put a downer on things really. It's a nice site, mega fooked from semi-demolition, the acoustics with the wind blowing everything loose around was great though. Another one that's been done loads but for those who don't know, Dyson Thermal Technologies (not to be confused with the vacuum cleaner manufacturer) manufactered bricks at the site in Stannington near Sheffield. Not much to write home about but more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157644138208568/
