    This place is a gem, it takes a while to get around because there is just so much stuff to look at and its a pretty big site! It was a lovely sunny day that sadly ended on a downer as I really hurt my leg on the way out! on a better note I got a great set of photographs :)

    History on Dyson Precision Ceramics Borrowed from Indecisive Moment

    The company was founded by John Dyson who began mining clay and making bricks in the early 1800s. From the very beginning the business was a success. The 1834 Sheffield trade directory lists - “John Dyson - Brick Maker, Stanningtonâ€￾ which indicates that he ran the business on his own. However, by 1838 the business was listed as “John Dyson and Son - Black clay miners and firebrick manufacturers, Griffs House, Stannington.

    Dyson’s were manufacturers of Refractory material, ceramics for the steel industry, they also produce fire backs and other household ceramic bricks for the likes of Aga's etc. They have also been known to sell clay for use in Well Dressings.

    Unfortunately Dyson’s traditional manufacturing process relied heavily on gas fired kilns. With increased in energy costs the plants was no longer economically viable, despite the very best efforts of the management and staff alike the site closed around 2005.

    The high performance niche products in Dyson’s range are still available and are the cornerstone in Dyson’s progression. The company have a wholly owned manufacturing facility in Tianjin, PRC which produces is high quality products.
