    So i visited this place with Goldie87 on a day trip to Sheff.
    Sorry to do this one so late, been meaning to get it posted for a little while :)

    More Sheffield reports on the way :)

    Small History:
    The Dyson group has its origins in the early 19th century, with the founding of a ceramics factory in Sheffield in 1810. The need for heat-resistant bricks for the newly developing furnaces driving the Industrial Revolution led the company to become an important producer of refractories and related ceramics products.
    By the late 1950s, Dyson had grown to include three clay preparation plants, each equipped with modern, gas-firing tunnel kilns, as well as ten intermittent kilns. The company also boasted complete brick shaping and drying facilities, in order to produce a wide variety of refractory shapes used for the production of steel ingots.

    A good explore here overall and I was really surprised with what we found. Enjoy the pics!
