Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet

Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet


Sheffield, United Kingdom (GB)
Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is an industrial museum in the south of the City of Sheffield, England. 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—and is a remarkably complete example of a 19th century works. The works are atypical in that much of the production process was completed on the same site (in a similar manner to a modern factory). A more typical example of water powered works in the area can be found at Shepherd Wheel.
