For all you Butcher fans:

http://jp29.org/wwbutcher.htm—The Butcher Company of Sheffield—is the first iteration of a new web page of mine. It is rough and undoubtedly will require much polishing before it is “ready for primetime”. I will be adding more illustrations and textual content from time to time.

Even if you do not visit my page, do not miss THE BUTCHER WORKS (PDF) ..... http://www.strazors.com/uploads/images/Butcher_Works_Panels_1-7.pdf ..... (courtesy of http://www.strazors.com/ ) which provides a fascinating illustrated tour of the Archaeological restoration of the original Butcher company Eyre Lane works – the only such restoration. Sponsored by English Heritage and the Sheffield City Council, this resource covers many aspects of day to day operations of the furnaces, forges and grinding shops.

Thank you for doing that. Its a great page. I collect Butcher’s tools but I never would have thought that the topic of what toilets they had in the facility was that well researched :)

I’m off to check out these links. I’ve been a Butcher collector for a while now.

Thanks to everyone who provided input. The page is now re-written and includes several new images.

It’s really fantastic. I can tell it represents a lot of work. I covet my Butchers even more now.
