Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet
Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is an industrial museum in the south of the City of Sheffield. The museum forms part of a former steel-working site on the River Sheaf, with a history going back to at least the 13th century. It consists of a number of dwellings and workshops that were formerly the Abbeydale Works, a scythe-making plant that was in operation until the 1930s.
The scythe making process started with crucible steel, in the tilt hammer workshops this steel was hammered between two pieces of iron. The blades were then drilled and sharpened.
The museum is open for free.
