Portland Works deadline for objection this Thursday

In March I posted about Portland Works a rather wonderful piece of Sheffield history. This was the first purpose built cutlery works in Sheffield and the first place in the world where stainless steel was made into cutlery. It has been in continuous use by various metalworking and cutlery trades since it was built and despite being grade II* listed is currently under threat of being developed into flats and the existing tenants businesses evicted. We have just 3 days to object.
