Firth Brown Steels was initially formed in 1902, when Sheffield steelmakers John Brown and Company exchanged shares and came to a working agreement with neighbouring company Thomas Firth & Sons. In 1908 the two companies came together and established the Brown Firth Research Laboratories and it was here, in 1912, under the leadership of Harry Brearley they developed high chrome stainless steel. The companies continued under their own management until they formally merged in 1930 becoming Firth Brown Steels.
The company was amalgamated into Sheffield Forgemasters in 1982.
After a bit of a failed visit at another location, this was the second successful spot of the day. A creepy underground medical centre which is quite small but has a great little photogenic feature in this decaying old bed frame. Visited with Ryan, Mex, Esposa, Riddler and Riddlers mate (Sorry I didn’t catch your name). Entry was interesting and enjoyable. Got some nice shots of the bed and the furnishings nice little mooch. On with the photos:
