Have you ever wondered about the mysterious spirits that lurk within old homes?
In 1964, Abbeydale Works underwent a renovation, leading to the discovery of six buildings, including a lime and coke shed and a boiler house that had been present on a 1924 site map.
The museum features remarkable waterwheels, a picturesque dam that powered the Hamlet, the UK's last remaining crucible steel furnace, and the grinding hull, tilt forge, and steam engine.
Many visitors may find themselves intrigued by the fascinating history behind the structures featured at the Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet Museum.
