Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet Museum

Updated: Feb 11

Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is a unique rural steelworks dating back to the 1700, which 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 Grade II listed buildings and a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

It is worth to see the Manager's House and Worker's Cottage, waterwheels, workshops, tilt hammers, a grinding hull.

I was surprised by this beautiful historic industrial site just only on the outskirts of Sheffield.

The most impressive were waterwheel and workshops to explore.

Why we do not harness that carbon free energy source more in our towns and industry today, but in more modern version?

Just look at some of my pics and short video about the waterwheel.
