  • This is a great place to visit (see my previous review), but it's a shame about the very restricted opening hours. I wish it was open more often.  more »

  • Relaxed atmosphere just drop in and learn a bit about the history of Sheffield
  • Despite this being not much more than a turning wooden wheel, we seem to have been more about 10 times.
  • Historic water powered workshop staffed by volunteers. Be sure to check opening times before visiting. Staff can explain the history of the site which is an example of many that used to line the city's rivers in the pre-coal era. They also arrange demonstrations of steel working using the grinding wheels. You can also walk around to the small courtyard at the rear and see the water wheel in action when the site is open.
  • Lovely to wander in, warm yourself up and have a chat with the awesome guides that work there and know everything about the place!
  • It was a fantastic day and an interesting place to visit!
