Water Powered Tilt Forge at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet

by j2g for www.riversheaf.org

Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is a working museum at the site of an old scythe works on the River Sheaf in Sheffield, UK. It houses a crucible steel melting shop, a water powered tilt forge and a water and steam powered grinding hull.

This video has been assembled from sequences shot between 1995 and 2000 in the tilt forge and outside at the main water wheel which drives the hammers.
