Wortley Top Forge

Recommended Posts

Three amature videos from YouTube

that show a couple of lads reporting for the 'MySheffield' project,

as they are taken on guided tour of the forge

and learn what the forgeing industry was like in years past.

Takes just over an hour, without the train trip. I was pretty tired from my stroll around Sheffield the day before (I still had the drive back to Nu-casl), plus Elsecar Heritage Centre and Wentworth Castle Gardens on the Sunday but well worth the effort and at £3 (minimum donation) very good value and very interesting too.

Guide very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his topic.

Some interesting additions to the topic, thank you Richard.
