    Well, after spending faaaar to long in Sheffield crown courts and then another hour figuring out how get into Georges this was a slap and dash run round in 30 minutes job.

    Mrs Shatners had only stamped my day release until 14:00hrs so appologies to Skankypants and Playerone who kindly rushed around with me so I didnt have a 'Tyrone' type incident when I got home.

    Incidentaly if your planning a visit here take some clean underpants because they may well be full of liquidated shepherds pie once you navigate the access! Im not ashamed to admit my back box got very twitchy at one point o_0


    History (stolen and without citation... I have no morals sorry)

    George Barnsley was apprenticed into the filemakers trade in 1823 by his mother, Anne, who had been widowed. He was signed in to the apprenticeship – to a Thomas Wing of Sheffield – for seven years and two hundred and seventy one days. He later went in to partnership with his brother and they established themselves as one of the worlds leading manufacturers of tools for the shoe making and leather trades. The company grew throughout the 19th century and the Barnsley family were held in high regard in the thriving city. Eventually the outdated factory and production methods fell victim to the increasingly competitive import market and the growing costs of production, finally closing in 2003.
