George Barnsley and Sons Ltd, founded 1836. They were in Cornish Place on the Don and specialised in forge filing and cutting tools for leather workers and shoe makers. One George Barnsley was Master Cutler in 1883.

George Barnsley and Son is listed in the 1837 Sheffield directory as a file manufacture situated on Wheeldon Street, The 1849 listing records a move to Cornhill and the 1852 to Cornesh works Cornesh street they had by this time also increased there product range to include steel files, shoe and butchers knives.





It was quite sad looking over early reports and even most recent reports to notice objects missing, ie the typewriters and plaque and probably much more. Fortunately an old accounting ledger machine the "Burroughs L5000" proved too much of a task to swipe.(so far).



Explored with Keďteď our guide, 2wid, Sammydoublewhammy and Existential Nihilist. This was our 2nd site on a Sheffield tour.
