"The Globe Works represents one of the few surviving monuments paying tribute to the pre-Bessemer surge of industrial expansion within the traditional tools, cutlery and steel mix of manufacturers."
"The Works are possibly the world’s first and England’s oldest surviving purpose built cutlery factory. When opened, the Works produced steel, tools and cutlery on the one site in an integrated process driven by steam power."
"The original owner had a house integrated into the design and this is the probable reason for the grandness of the ornamental façade frontage built in coarse square stone and brick in the Classical Revival style."
The building hosts 50 office spaces, varying from 250 to 10,000 sq/ft. This makes Globe Works a perfect home for both established firms, and exciting start-up businesses. Overall, we boast over 35,000 sq ft of mixed use space.
Globe Works provides the perfect working space for exiting start-up and creative businesses. Populated with like minded companies, it offers high quality finished surroundings for the modern day company.
Despite the already fantastic spaces available at Globe Works, the development is far from over. There are other derelict spaces that are currently being renovated to provide more offices and other exciting projects.
