I've been many times to the industrial hamlet I've been mainly on steam traction days and if you like that kind of thing then it's such a nice day out the smell sound and meeting enthusiasts makes it what it is with some interesting local history

I organised a trip to Sheffield for 38 people all with an interest in our Heritage and Preservation of old vehicles. On the Monday Morning we visited the Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, there was plenty to see and much to learn at this fascinating place. Not only was the process of the making of scythes and agricultural hardware explained in the... More

This 18th century rural steelworks is one of Sheffield's three industrial museums, with right friendly staff throughout. When we visited, the water wheel was being repaired, so I can't tell you how impressive it is when working the tilt hammers and bellows to this unique crucible steel furnace. There were two steam traction engines in the yard, but neither were... More

We visited Abbeydale with friends and found it a fascinating museum. The volunteer helpers were all very friendly and we learnt so much about the history of this place, well worth the visit and would definitely visit again!

My wife and I popped in to the Hamlet Cafe for a light bite. I found the ambience good, the staff friendly, efficient and polite. The coffee was good and the cheese and onion toasties gorgeous. We will certainly return if only for the toasties and the excellent coffee at a very reasonable cost.

I can't believe that I have lived in Sheffield all my life and driven past the Hamlet dozens of times and never called in before! An evening visit was organised by my Rotary Club and around 50 of us attended. We were split into 2 groups and had a guide each, our guide gave us a comprehensive tour of the... More

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit. Our event days are certainly some of the highlights of the Abbeydale year. On non event days there is on site parking. We would ask visitor who are unable to park onsite to be considerate to those who live near the Hamlet when seeking alternative parking. More
