    Hi,

    Spent a day in Sheffield exploring the old George Barnsley buildings. The site is huge, we spent around 5 hours going through all the main offices and some of the outbuildings, and still didn't see everything. Eventually hunger and soon to be fading light leading us to call it a day. Met a surprising amount of other explorers (about 4 other groups), so it's definitely a popular venue at the moment. Big thanks to the group from Derby, who assisted our entrance, and the people we met inside. It's an old tool makers for leather workers, files etc in the outbuildings you can see some of the original machines to make the tools, and as you enter the main office block you'll find typical offices and also a lot of storage places that appear to be where they kept stock.

    History:
    A nice bright sunny day for an exploration:

    The rust has started eating away at some of the outside metallic objects.

    Outbuilding full of heavy machinery

    Nice spiral staircase inside the main offices.

    Not sure what all these colourful pictures were there for, but there were a lot in this room

    Some of the original tools still exist, albeit slightly rusty now.

    A lot of the glass inside the main office buildings is still intact.

    I don't think you'll get an answer if you were to ring the bell

    One of the storage rooms, spent ages in here as it was really interesting.

    View from a storage room across including the bridge (be careful if crossing the bridge, floor is rotten)

    Huge grinding wheel in one of the outbuildings.

    Quite a depressing thought to think of people just leaving personal things behind when it closed.
