    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:
