A change of scene! This is the cutlery works of David Mellor, located a little way outside Hathersage in Derbyshire. Mellor was a noted designer who was trained, I believe, in Sheffield and who had his works there for many years before moving to this custom-built location in Derbyshire. Mellor died in 2009 and his son, Corin, also a designer took over. There's also a shop selling Mellor designs as well as other very fine (and very expensive) kitchen and cook wear. However, if you don't buy anything you can always have a good cup of coffee in the cafe. :-)
The building has won a number of awards: Financial Times Architecture at Work Award, RIBA National Award, Civic Trust Award, Campaign for the Protection of Rural England Award and the prestigious BBC Design Prize for the Environment.
