Yet another stop off with Kaplan on the Sheffield Day trip.

Again, nothing new to see, but a quick look in here was a must being in the area.

Firth Brown Steels was initially formed in 1902, when Sheffield steelmakers John Brown and Company exchanged shares and came to a working agreement with neighbouring company Thomas Firth & Sons. In 1908 the two companies came together and established the Brown Firth Research Laboratories and it was here, in 1912, under the leadership of Harry Brearley they developed high chrome stainless steel. The companies continued under their own management until they formally merged in 1930 becoming Firth Brown Steels.

The company was amalgamated into Sheffield Forgemasters in 1982.





Also a very brief look at Green Lane Works just to see if there was anything interesting, there wasn't, just empty mill space and no access to the upper floors which were probably more interesting, i have thrown up a couple of shots just for the sake of it :D

The Green Lane Works are a disused industrial facility situated in the City of Sheffield, England. The entrance gate to the works is particularly ornate and has been designated as a Grade II* listed building.


Cheers for looking :thumb
