Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet Museum


Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is a unique eighteenth century industrial works. Catch a glimpse of life at home and at work at a rural scythe and steelworks dating back to the 18th century.

It is now a group of Grade I and Grade II listed buildings and a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
