    Okay so I know this one has been done to death by the You Tube brigade and has certainly seen better days, but we couldn't resist a stop in whilst in Sheffield. I visited with @Shimmy5305 after a 2 1/2 drive through the Peak District, the area is pretty much deserted apart from a small farm house and the odd car passing by the main gate.

    History
    The company was founded by John Dyson who began mining clay and making bricks in the early 1800s. From the very beginning the business was a success. By 1838 the business was listed as “John Dyson and Son - Black clay miners and firebrick manufacturers, Griffs House, Stannington." Dyson's were later manufacturers of Refractory material, ceramics for the steel industry, they also produce fire backs and other household ceramic bricks for the likes of Aga's etc. Dyson'sl manufacturing process relied heavily on gas fired kilns. With increased in energy costs the plants was no longer economically viable, despite the very best efforts of the management and staff alike the site closed around 2005.
