I've had an eye on this for a while. From the outside, it looks unbearably juicey, but once I found an in, I was tres disappointed :( It seems that I'm a good few years too late as development work began a while back and the place has been gutted of almost everything worthwhile a look. MEH!

Still, in the interest of mapping, I'ma posting.

This is Green Lane Works. A strange hodge podge of buildings.

History (borrowed from wiki): The original Green Lane Works were established in 1795 by the firm of Hoole and Company who were manufacturers of ornamental stove grates and fenders in Bronze and metal. The firm flourished and their products won a first Council medal at the The Great Exhibition of 1851 and a Medaille d'honneur at the Exposition Universelle of 1855. This success brought considerable prestige to the firm and its proprietor at the time Henry E. Hoole. In 1859 Hoole was elected Lord Mayor of Sheffield and to celebrate this he had major alterations carried out to the works.
