Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet

Description

Catch a unique glimpse of life at home and at work at a scythe and steelworks dating back to the 18th century.

Abbeydale Works' was once a producer of agricultural tools and the largest water-powered industrial site on the River Sheaf.  It is now a group of Grade I and II* listed buildings and a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

See worker's houses, waterwheels, workshops, tilt hammers, a grinding hull and the last complete surviving crucible steel furnace in the UK!

As part of an ongoing £1 million Heritage Lottery Fund Restoration project, see the Hamlet transformed with a new Learning Centre, gallery and hands-on displays revealing 'All About Abbeydale'.
