A major component of the ATLAS Phase-II upgrade is the Inner Tracker, an all-silicon detector featuring novel microstrip sensors. Motivated by the current research efforts in silicon sensor technology, a characterisation facility has been recently upgraded at the University of Sheffield. A description of the facility along with initial benchmark measurements of sensors before and after their irradiation are presented. The results were found to be in agreement with similar measurements conducted by other facilities in the UK and support the successful commissioning of the facility.
