    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 Cornish works Cornish street they had by this time also increased there product range to include steel files, shoe and butchers knives.
    They are again listed in 1944 as manufactures of files and blades shoe knives and leather workers tools.

    In the 1948 listing the business had become George Barnsley and Son Ltd George Barnsley died at his home at No 30 Collegiate Crescent on 30th March 1958, he lived there with his wife Mabel and mother-in-law Elizabeth.

    Hi, new to this site and saw this first. Went to check it out today and it was all boarded up and locked. Any tips on photography and getting into places would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
