Cornish Works

This toolmakers was established back in 1836 and opened at this location in 1852. Local records show the business originally being a manufacturer of files although the product line eventually expanded to include butchers knives and all manner of leather working tools. Trading was finally ceased in 2004 and the building has been lying dormant ever since save the occasional vagrant and ne’er-do-wells using it as temporary lodgings.

Walking around the building is akin to stepping back in time with works of carpentry all around and a noticeable lack of more modern materials such as metal and plastic. Complementing the tones of the wood I was treat to the sight of golden sun pouring through the tall windows and lighting the rooms beautifully.
