I had forgotten all about this place until it came up in conversation with @Esoteric Eric a few days ago . Visited in March 2015; even if I hadn't been lazy and actually put a report up at the time it wouldn't have been much use as the place was stripped and gone pretty much the week after I visited.

The company went into receivership, at least in part due to the fraudulent dealings of professional footballer Andrew Mitchell, who was also the managing director:
'Sheffield Crown Court was told the firm, based on Meadow Bank Road, Kimberworth, Rotherham, went out of business partly because of the fraud with the loss of between 70 and 90 jobs, Mitchell falsified invoices to boost his £40,000 salary by £114,000 in bonus payments over three years, said Ian Goldsack, prosecuting'.

These pics were phone only as I was on my way somewhere else without a camera, and I had to do a fair bit of digging around in old folders to find them, but I think they're worth a quick look.... Visited with @Sheard
