Review

Shepherd Wheel, one of the Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust trilogy, lies in the Porter Brook Valley, where the sylvan waterside splendour of the area adds to its charm. The water-driven grinding workshop on the site shows the visitor how those well-known Sheffield knives got so sharp, all the way back to the fifteenth century up to the 1930s. You will be well satisfied by a visit to these magnificently restored works, the only complete and working water-powered grinding works still in existence, housed in Grade II listed buildings, while the site is an official Scheduled Ancient Monument. A visit to the Shepherd Wheel includes hearing stories of times long gone and a walk along the dam fed by the River Porter in the footsteps of people who had done so for centuries. The Shepherd Wheel is open year-round, but check before you go, and general admission free of charge!
