Wortley Top Forge in about 1904 – before production ceased in about 1910.
The kitchen yard – complete with the washhouse and the tin bath on a nail in the wall – is a sun-trap and a possible picnic area.
Our largest breast-shot water wheel drives a tilt hammer which forged wrought iron railway axles in Victorian times.
Wortley Top Forge is a Scheduled Ancient Monument to the Iron Industry of South Yorkshire.
It is also an Industrial Museum with many working exhibits.
