    My Visit
    Second spot of the day and this one had been on my list since my last visit to Sheffield. Not sure what it was about the place but I really enjoyed this one.

    History
    Woollen & Co Sheffield was formed in 1883 by Edwin Woollen, a sign writer and Frederick Ibbotson a lithographic printer. Woollens dealt with bespoke signage including hand painted signage. The site closed in 2008 after a takeover with several former employees going on to form a new Woollens while maintaining some of the old customer base.
