Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet
Fascinating industrial heritage museum with working water-powered industrial works. See workers' houses, waterwheels, workshops, tilt hammers, a grinding hull and the last complete crucible steel furnace surviving in the UK!
In the days before steel mills, metalworking was a cottage industry (just like wool and cotton). For a glimpse of that earlier, more innocent era, explore the restored 18th-century forges.
“Lovely pub on the old cricket green - lovely for lunch and/or dinner. Great quality food and reasonable prices! Less than 5 min drive or a leisurely walk in summer, about 20mins.”
“You are staying opposite so rude not to! Lots of local ales here. This is a family pub. They sometimes have music on too.”
“Sheffield Hallam University is a public research university in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England and one of the UK's largest and most diverse universities”
