    Default George Barnsley & Sons, Sheffield - August 2013

    Visited twice this month with dannyday58218195. I'm ashamed to say we've been here 4 times now and walked around the entire place and never managed to find a way in, so assumed it had been sealed up and gave up, but noticed that people keep going back, so decided to go back for one last try. Once again walked around for about 45mins looking lost and couldn't find the entrance, but just as we were going to give up again we saw 2 other explorers from another site who kindly told us how to get in, but with the time wasted walking around it was starting to get dark so decided to have a mooch about and return another day to take some photos, but unfortunately for my buddy boy he forgot to charge his batteries so ended up waltzing around like a lost sheep while I took all the photos :P

    A bit of history which I'm sure everybody is already aware of:-
    George Barnsley & Sons Ltd was founded in 1836 and specialised in tools for shoe makers and leather workers. The building closed around 2004.

    On to the pictures!
































    Sorry it's a bit pic heavy!

    As always thanks for looking!

    Nice photo's, I was in Sheffield last week and drove past on my way to the Fat Cat pub, but ashamed to say I didn't have time to stop. Think I should have a trip back though just to say i've been.

    I was here this weekend, and it didn't take me long to figure out access. That said some idiot pushed the ladder back in and I had to endure a massive drop!
