This is a rare opportunity to acquire a major development opportunity in the very popular after historic, Kelham Island location of Sheffield.

Cornish and Wharncliffe Works date back to 1849. The two buildings were originally built by George Barnsley & Sons, who were one of the largest manufacturers of steel tools for leather work and shoe making.

Both properties are Grade II Listed and sit on a total site area of 1.1 acre (0.45 hectare) providing one of the last development opportunities in this popular area of Sheffield.

It represents a truly unique opportunity to deliver an iconic development project.

Kelham Island is a designated Conservation Area and is located on the northern fringe of the city centre, alongside the River Don. The area is steeped in heritage and was fundamental to the growth of the city during the 18th & 19th centuries. The architecture reflects this. Many of the original buildings remain, making the area architecturally attractive and appealing, resulting in the location becoming one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant areas of the City.

It is host to an exciting mix of pubs, restaurants, museums, and commercial uses. The diverse residential population includes students, young professionals and families.

Offers will be considered on both an unconditional basis or on a Subject to Planning basis. Further information available upon request.
