Ok so today myself and Collydog and Siddo111 travelled to sheffield to check out this place, For us it was pretty much our biggest explore weve done by far we have done quite a few others but with easy access to this was fun getting in and out of this place, Little history behind it that i shamefully will copy and paste below :thumb

George Barnsley was apprenticed into the filemakers trade in 1823 by his mother, Anne, who had been widowed. He was signed in to the apprenticeship – to a Thomas Wing of Sheffield – for seven years and two hundred and seventy one days. He later went in to partnership with his brother and they established themselves as one of the worlds leading manufacturers of tools for the shoe making and leather trades. The company grew throughout the 19th century and the Barnsley family were held in high regard in the thriving city. Eventually the outdated factory and production methods fell victim to the increasingly competitive import market and the growing costs of production, finally closing in 2003.

So onto my pictures here are a few of the photos i taken today
