    The Visit
    So this was actually my second visit here but the first time we didn't get into any buildings and were very disappointed by it all.. after seeing a few reports it seemed clear this place had more to offer so we returned more determined to get inside.. was actually not that difficult after all and had a really good explore here. Some interesting bits and pieces about and those ovens are just huge!

    The 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.

    Haha, like the toaster, don't remember seeing that. I found those tunnels downstairs to be really interesting too. Good to see the place again :thumb

    Nice report.

    Where is this info from? A few people have exlored the Totley site & it didn't appear to active. The groups head office is based at Totley though. Me & @Ric once had a run in with the world's most unenthusiastic security guard there.

    Picture 4 is an epic win! Pictures 8 and 9; sort of resemble Battersea A Control Room.
