My second visit to this place, this time in the company of Pete Costello, Lowri, Sonyes and Darbian (Mule Slept in on this occasion Lazy bugger!). For history and more photos from the initial visit in October visit the original visit report.
Briefly George Barnsley’s began manufacturing files before becoming one of the worlds leading manufacturers of tools for the shoe making and leather trades. Closing in 2003 the place is like a walk through time in both its construction and architecture to the items left behind. A very photogenic explore it will always be a favourite of mine.
This visit was completed in the snow which made for a few more interesting externals and we were blessed with some nice light :). I tried to focus more on things I didn’t take photos of the first time round and I also mange to capture some GoPro footage (find the video below or on youtube here. Favourite bits have to be the entry / exit as usual and the walkway as well at the attic rooms that I think I missed on the first visit. One thing I did notice was that the office enquiries ring window and the room has new graffiti 🙁 sad times. Hope you enjoy the photos comments always appreciated.
