Abandoned Foundry, Sheffield (February 2015)
This place was a Sheffield based manufacturing firm which specialised within producing Iron and Steel quality rolls, discs and sleeves for the manufacturing and food processing industry.
Had an eye on this location for a while after a failed attempt during the fall of last year however a fail only makes us want to try again so we did!
Visited during a weekday so the area where this Foundry is based was that little bit more busier than usual. Access was fairly simple with a little climb and a little jump, something along those lines anyhow.
Once inside, I was amazed by vast open space! I’m a sucker for open spaces. Before the visit I knew the place was stripped of most of it’s original equipment however it was cool to still be able to climb into the main work cranes and have a bogey around!
What interested me about this works was the fact that it had a medical room full of equipment in a vintage style, which is always cool to see; you’ll see this within the photos later on!
The works also had a WW2 airaid shelter which was locked, unfortunately!
Now now, onto this piccys you’ve been waiting for!
Many many many more posts to come! Stay tuned, thanks for reading.
