    OK, so I did this a while ago and totally forgot about it. Was helping a photographer do a photoshoot and ended up here. It used to be an ironmongers, and there is no access other than the front door, the owner lives opposite and it is alarmed, so really a no go... Was a little rushed, so didn't have time to take the most amazing pictures... Anyway, a little history

    Treadgold Industrial Heritage Museum was home to William Treadgold & Co, ironmongers and steel merchants, trading at the same premises from 1809 until 1988.
    This site was developed after 1704 when Queen Anne authorised the building of houses for Dockyard personnel on Sea Mill Furlong, Portsea to ease the pressure within the walled city of Portsmouth caused by the increase in population at the dockyard. In 1873-4 a forge and workshop was built on the site of three late C18 tenements and some earlier warehouses. Treadgold's ceased trading in 1988 and has since become an industrial museum.


    ...and has since become nothing... I believe it shut down around 2004 due to health and safety, lots of iron remians, along with piles of paperwork. Was a small, but nice explore.

    I'd be stiff too if I maintained that pose for 12 years.

    Larger photos would be good. Looks like an interesting wander though.
