Alfred Beckett & Sons Ltd

Alfred Beckett & Sons Ltd
The Brooklyn Works were constructed in the mid 19th century for the firm of Alfred Beckett, manufacturers of steel, saws and files. Alfred Beckett & Sons Ltd continued to manufacture at the Brooklyn Works until the mid-1960s using the 'Matchless' trademark. In 1967 Alfred Beckett & Sons was purchased by the Tempered Spring Company Ltd of Sheffield. The building stood empty for a period of time and was listed Grade II in November 1985 to protect it from demolition. In the 1990s the Sheffield-based firm of AXIS Architecture turned the disused works into residential apartments and offices for small businesses.
