    Dyson Thermal Technologies, Stannington, Sheffield, July 2014

    I had previously made a lone visit but didn't explore the whole site so made a return visit with a non 29dl member.

    History pulled off internet...

    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, Stannington” 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 know to sell clay for use in Well Dressings.

    On with the pictures...

    You've done a really good job here considering the state the place is currently in.
