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 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 the Manager’s House and Worker’s Cottage, waterwheels, workshops, tilt hammers, a grinding hull and the last complete surviving crucible steel furnace in the UK! See working waterwheels every Wednesday and our Davy Brothers steam engine in steam every Thursday.
