  1. Incredible climate. Several work halls, in one stand drills, lathes, milling machines ... right next to carriages and goods wagons. Everything is gently sunk in the green eaves ... Some 150 skilled workers used to work in these halls. Today there is silence. (translated in a translator)
  2. What a place! I dont often favour these types of places, but this one was a must from ever seeing it once on the forums a few years back, still to this day I loved it and have a new soft spot for places like this. Inside its a mini death trap with soggy pigeon poo soaked floors, but it has such a photographic essence you cant really go wrong no matter where you point an set up your camera. Had issues limiting my photos from here. Some history below! George Barnsley & Sons Ltd was founded in 1836 and were originally situated on Wheeldon Street, Sheffield. By 1849 they had moved to the Cornish Works, which were much larger premises. They specialised in the manufacture of files and cutting tools for use in the shoe making industry. There are a number of family names that are known to have deep roots in the Sheffield area, and the Barnsley name is undoubtedly one of them. In 1650 George Barnsley became Master Cutler, a role fulfilled by another George Barnsley in 1883. This George Barnsley was of the second generation of the firm of George Barnsley and Sons, toolmakers. The business grew to become the world's leading producer of tools for shoemakers. The technological revolution of the 20th century saw a decline in the need for traditional tools. George Barnsley's survived until 2003 when the premises finally closed Thanks for looking folks
  3. Today I´d like to present an abandoned workshop for streetcars. I´ve visited it several times so far and I´m still fascinated by this place. History: The old workshop was built in the years 1913/14 due to the increasing traffic of street cars. The landmark of the area is the old clocktower, in which a huge water tank is hidden. Reportedly, the apprentices who had their own apprentice workshop on the grounds used the old tank as swimming pool during hot summer days... The grounds have been abandoned for more than a decade. Now, an estate company has bought the area and is planning to establish a housing area. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
  4. Again, I posted this in the Industrial section because joinery training still seems industrial to me. It was abandoned in 2009 after the company running the training facility went bust. I managed to explore the place during December 2010.
  5. I'm not sure if I have posted this in the correct section, but since it is to do with painting, it still seems industrial despite it being in a college. OK, A college offers a painting and decorating course as part of it's many courses on offer. In around 1981/82, a dedicated workshop building opened used to for the painting and decorating lessons. It was in use for many years up until recently when the painting and decorating classes relocated to a new building. However, the old building has now been abandoned and nothing has been done with it whatsoever. I didn't take any pictures, but here is a video clip of the place:
