    This place has now been turn in to an Airsoft building so tyres everywhere and not much else apart from the main door.

    History -
    What is now known as The Stanley Tools Factory, Sheffield was built in the 1850’s. At the moment it is derelict awaiting refurbishment. It is 100,000 Sq.ft in size and is spread over a 4 floor factory and a 2 floor office block. Stanley Tools took over from the Chapman Brace and Drill Factory in 1937. The site has been used as a film set recently and has also been used for zombie experiences due to the size of the location.

    Hi, you mentioned that the site is used for Airsoft, does this mean it is rented/owned by an Airsoft company or is it done illegally? Place seems interesting and i would like to check it out but not run into a group of people running around shooting each other!
    Thanks
    Miyk

    Detained maybe, an arrest seems a little over the top if you were only armed with a camera unless you gave them a reason to be suspicious.

    We tried to get in there a few weeks ago, as I was about to jump in, a heavily armed guy (well with airsoft kit) approached and told me I had to leave as he owned the building. Im pretty sure he was lying from his body language. But 2 of my friends who had already jumped in came back and said they had found a loud of needles... so we left him to it.

    Motion detection everywhere. Got caught. Give a miss or be very careful.

    As above! Cameras and motion sensors. People were on site within 3 minutes of us getting on site today; not to mention the police turning up too :(
