    George Barnsley & Sons​

    Visited with scottnicklin and siddo111 just a skip down the motorway to this site that seemed to go on and on, couldn't get over who big the place was. Thanks for the information on this place you know who you are :thumb. I'm sure this place had seen better days and now that some of the painters and decorators had recently been in and tagged one of the walls I hope its not going to go even further into ruin.


    Again this place has been well covered over the years so here's a snippet of history just to give you a flavour again borrowed from various sources

    George Barnsley & Sons Ltd specialised in tools for shoe makers and leather workers. 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 Cornish works, Cornish 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. The building closed around 2004​
