    I visited this place with @Dangle_Angle and @Lavino after the main target of the day was a fail. Thanks to Lavino driving us here and even tho they had already been they also enjoyed the place to. I also got to learn how to use the camera a bit better :D. The inside of this place is amazing because the whole place hardly has any graffiti and the place is in pretty good condition. Also the whole place is made out of wood which gives a very nice feel to the place. Anyway here is some pictures and some history, hope you enjoy :thumb.

    George Barnsley and Sons Ltd. (founded 1836) They were in Cornish Place on the Don and specialised in forge filing and cutting tools for leather workers and shoe makers. One George Barnsley was Master Cutler in 1883.:

    George Barnsley and Son is listed in the 1837 Sheffield directory as a file manufacture situated on Wheeldon Street, The 1849 listing records a move to Cornhill and the 1852 to Cornesh works Cornesh street they had by this time also increased there product range to include steel files, shoe and butchers knives.

    They are again listed in 1944 as manufactures of files and blades shoe knives and leather workers tools.

    In the 1948 listing the business had become George Barnsley and Son Ltd

    George Barnsley died at his home at No 30 Collegiate Crescent on 30th March 1958, he lived there with his wife Mabel and mother-in-law Elizabeth. He was a partner in the firm which were steel and file manufacturers and the business was converted into a limited company about 10 years before his death.

    He had a long army career, joining up in 1896 and serving in the Boer war and two world wars. Colonel Barnsley played a leading part in the development of the Army Cadet Force in Sheffield. He Died Aged 83. (History from Lavino)

    Lovely job mate, cracking pictures.

    And yes, it has stood up to the traffic quite well - by all rights should have burned down years ago.

    Quite amazing it still looks as good as it does really... it's been on the scene some years now.
    To be honest I can't believe it's not flats! Kellam Island is quite the place to be these days... I remember the days when ropey looking skanks would eye you up for "business" outside William's fasteners.
