  • Visited Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet today with the family and it was really interesting learning about steel making. The big water wheel is a must see as well as the visitor centre. Coffee and cakes were amazing and warmed us all up. 5 stars I will give this place.
  • A very interesting afternoon. It wasn't busy when we visited so we had a nosey stroll. Plenty to see. There is a cafe and toilets. The pathways are uneven and there are stairs to parts of it so these parts could prove difficult to for disabled person, depending on level and type of disability. We didn't use the cafe so can't comment apart from to say this is where you get your tickets from and the people running the cafe are very pleasant and helpful. The toilets are next to the cafe on the ground floor.
  • This is a must-see. Incredible Sheffield ironworks, making scythes - just as it was 200 years ago. Unbelievable quantity of tools, half-made items, etc.
  • Excellent educational experience for adults and children. Brilliant way to learn about some of Sheffield's industrial crucible steel making and scythe blade forging. The volunteers are knowledgeable and friendly and help with your understanding. I definitely recommend downloading the app (links on their website) before setting off.
  • Not massive but a reasonably interesting wander round some of Sheffield industrial heritage
