History and explore

Dyson refractories was founded by John Dyson who began mining clay and making bricks in the early 1800s. From the very beginning the business was a success. Dyson's were later manufacturers of refractory material, ceramics for the steel industry, they also produce fire backs and other household ceramic bricks for the likes of Aga's.

Dysons manufacturing process relied heavily on gas fired kilns. With increased in energy costs the plants was no longer economically viable, despite the very best efforts of the management and staff alike the site closed around 2005. in 2015 Sheffield City Council had approved an application to build 88 new of homes on the site and the planning application has been running since January 2015, but in February of 2016 the company pulled out citing the development as being unviable.

Explore
Driving up to Dyson refractories we were expecting a great explore but was met with massive construction vehicles... so we parked up went to the front gate and waved to the security guard to get his attention. He came to the front gate and after some persuading he let use in. Unfortunately the main building and some outbuildings where demolished but it was still good because in a weeks time everything is going to get demolished (according to the security guard) so technically we are the last people to ever explore this legendary explore.
