George Barnsley Limited, Sheffield

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Sheffield lies this abandoned gem.

George Barnsley Ltd made wooden handles for the many woodworking tools that Sheffield’s metal industries were manufacturing – saws, files, screwdrivers etc

Sometime in the not so distant past the company ceased trading and Mr Barnsly & Co upped sticks, leaving behind a warren of rooms packed with wooden workbeches and storage cupboards to the mercy of Sheffield’s pigeon population whose toilet habits leave something to be desired.

This place is so stunning you almost get weary of walking into another room stuffed full of dark wood shelving slowly collecting a layer of pigeon shit…
