    We had a real stroke of luck here... an electrician was working on the ground floor which has been bought by a car dealership and he allowed us in for an hour to have a look around the main building.

    The majority of the building has been kitted out for airsoft so lots of crates, tyres etc around..

    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.

    1. Not many items in there still bear the Stanley name unfortunately
