    Been meaning to check this out for a while, after a couple of half hearted attempts to find it randomly and with very little information, we returned after some research.

    Access is amusing, but worth a shout - its a pretty authentic site, as degraded as it is. Take decent light though....

    History>

    "Formed in 1902 as an agreement between two steelmakers, John Brown & Co. and Thomas Firth and sons with both companies keeping their own management structure.They came together in 1908 to form Brown Firth Research Laboratories where on 13th August 1913 Harry Brearley invented stainless steel. The companies formally merged in 1930 under the banner, Firth Brown Steels. Sheffield's biggest steelworks.
    The two companies manufactured at various sites around Sheffield until consolidating at the Atlas works.
    After the nationalization of the steel industry in 1967 the company saw various changes and is now part of Sheffield Forgemasters.
    The Atlas works cast its last steel on 26th May 1984 and the building was completely demolished in the mid to late eighties"

    The year from the newspaper is 1940, oldest we have come across yet :-)
