Visit Sheffield’s three unique heritage sites and museums to uncover the story behind the growth of the steel city and its impact on the world.
Kelham Island Museum, Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet and Shepherd Wheel are the showcase of Sheffield’s industrial story from industrialisation to modern times, where ‘Made in Sheffield’ remains a mare of craftsmanship and quality known worldwide.
On the edge of the city centre, Kelham Island tells the story of light trades and skilled workmanship to mass production. It’s also home to the most powerful working steam engine in Europe. At the 18th Century Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, you’ll catch a glimpse of life at home and at work at a rural scythe and steelworks, and discover Shepherd Wheel, the most complete example of water powered grinding workshops dating back to the 1500s.
