Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet
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 major 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 workers’ houses, waterwheels, workshops, tilt hammers, a grinding hull and the last complete surviving crucible steel furnace in the UK!
Make your first stop at the Hamlet, our new fully accessible Learning Centre, Café and Museum Shop! Their new exhibition All About Abbeydale reveals the story behind the works, it’s people and their working lives through film and a multi-sensory timeline to help explore the site. Catch a glimpse of everyday life at home and at work in our newly displayed houses and workshops or get hands on with history in ‘The Works’. Visitors can now use their fun and accessible free app to reveal the Hamlet’s rich history! For an exciting programme of events throughout the year please visit their website below!
