    The Butcher Works where the maker Wade & Butcher made there wares of razor's, knives and cleavers and many more items .

    By 1822 the brothers William and Samuel Butcher had already established the butcher works as a significant producer of edge tools and cutlery in Sheffield. Trade had reached the far corners of the globe by the 1850s, with the main market being America where a New York office was established. Following the deaths of the brothers by 1870, the company retracted in size and the safety razors became a major part of the business until the trade mark was disposed of in 1950s

    And now today with much help from people who won't let it go to the wrecking ball
    the first floor is retail shops and bistro and bakery and the top floors are posh flats.
