Record Marpels Sheffield

One year ago there was a party in here, it was one of the after parties that followed on from peace in the park. At about 6 am the party finished very abruptly when a girl fell off the roof of the 4 story warehouse. The police and paramedics were there extremely quickly. A lot of people had climbed out through an upstairs window and were siting around relaxing on the flat roof of the warehouse that the party was in.

The earliest recorded (so far) mention of ‘Marples’ is about the 1540’s, in Baslow, Derbyshire. There the family stayed until about 1750, when they moved to Sheffield. The years 1772 & 1774 saw the birth of two sons, William & Robert, both of whom were listed as Joiners tool makers. William’s son, William (b. 1809) was most likely the founder of the firm William Marples & Sons (also joined by George Marples), later becoming Record Marples. The other son Robert (b. 1801), produced the first of the long line of Joseph Marples (b. 1801). This Joseph being the founder of our company in 1840. During this period there were no less than seven Marples’ companies operating out of Sheffield, all somehow being related


One year on from The girl falling from The Roof, this place is wide open just at the same time as this years Peace in the Park event?, nothing has changed other than the Pigion Shit is deeper and there has been some movement of objects, the rubbish left from the party still litters the floors, when we first got inside there years back this place was un smashed and quite a nice mooch, now it has become a dystopia.
