    First report here but working through a backlog!

    History:

    Firth Brown Steels was initially formed in 1902, when Sheffield steelmakers John Brown and Company exchanged shares and came to a working agreement with neighbouring company Thomas Firth & Sons. In 1908 the two companies came together and established the Brown Firth Research Laboratories and it was here, in 1912, under the leadership of Harry Brearley they developed high chrome stainless steel. The companies continued under their own management until they formally merged in 1930 becoming Firth Brown Steels. The company was amalgamated into Sheffield Forgemasters in 1982.

    The explore:

    Had to come back a second time for this one as went via security and got turfed out, after dismissing what I suspected to be the correct entrance.

    You may well be the first person to ever get caught in here by security lol. Still, nice one for going back and getting in successfully. It's a sad sight in there these days :(

    @Zylexus we try not to post access details as this is a public forum. If you post a few reports up of places you've done, people will be more willing to share access information with you. After all, until you post something, you could be anyone.

    Finding the cat skeleton was amusing after reading an old report saying how it stank out the entire place.
    One thing I will say is don't go for the first entrance you find.. after squeezing myself in I was less than impressed to find several much easier ways!
    I wasn't caught actually in the hospital but as I went around the side in attempt to access the car park.

    Ah, that explains how you got caught lol.

    Yeah, the last time I visited that cat was fresh and juicy still - I think it had only just died.

    They effectively built on top of the remains of the medical centre, in a way.
