    So, history first.
    A. R. Heathcote and Co. Ltd made machine knives, including printers' guillotine knives, shear blades and tobacco and cigarette knives, as well as their signature "Park" brand knives.

    Named after its founder Albert Reaney Heathcote in 1881, previously it had been a chisel and edge tool manufacturer. The first sales of tobacco knives were recorded on 5 April, 1881 and between the two World Wars the company’s activities underwent a significant shift as the edge tool business disappeared and business focused on knives for the tobacco industry. This resulted in the factory located on Sylvester Gardens in the centre of Sheffield and referred to as Bernard Works opening in 1934.

    So back to present day, this building now is rather decayed. It's evident that recent work has been done to keep the building standing (Props on the sides of the buildings and a new timber roof in one of the buildings). It's got a load of graffiti around - but the decent kind.
