On Friday night, the DQ and I enjoyed our favourite type of night out - a walk around Sheffield with our camera's. One part of our walk took in a whole area of the city that is currently fairly derelict - urban decay.
Sheffield has literally hundreds of complete and empty cutlery, scissor, saw workshops - leftover from when we used to supply the world with every blade it required. These workshops started in the city centre and spread out into the suburbs. Thankfully, the council has now realised their importance and stopped pulling them down - they are quite unique and I have never visited another city that has anything similar.
Eyewitness Works - Wikepedia says that they still manufacture here - I shall have to investigate.
Archipelago works - now a hub for artists and printing works.
