The Old West Gun Works - Sheffield, UK

Our Sheffield head office and heritage site. Formerly a gun factory, we moved into the building in September 1994. Opened by HRH the Prince of Wales in 1994, who described it as “one of the finest refurbishments of a listed building that I have ever seen”, the Gun Works also features a spider sculpture on the side of the wall which is now a landmark in the Sheffield region.
