    Not been able to get out and about much recently and locally here in Sheffield there's not much new to explore. This is nothing too exciting but it's not been reported on as far as I'm aware so here goes. G.H. White & Co Ltd/EON works is situated on Earl Street in the Cultural Industries Quarter of Sheffield. Axis Architecture are planning to demolish it and construct a new five-storey building containing 129 studios and apartments so it might not be around for much longer.

    The former heat treatment works served Sheffield's metals industry, in particular the cutlery trade. It opened in 1939 and G.H. White was first incorporated in 1941. Shortly after the works were apparently damaged during the blitz. After that the history on the place gets a bit sketchy. Although Eon works has been empty for some time the company now trades as 'Special Steel Co' out of their new premises on Bacon Lane (S9).

    Here’s the pix.

    Stylish but simple façade:

    Bit of Andy Warhol-style street art:

    All shuttered up on the street side:

    And the other side too:

    The new and the old:

    Inside is a bit bare:

    Apart from a bit of nature that has come in:

    Some of the old pipe-work:

    This reminds me of the Hacienda nightclub in Manchester:
