History

Enjoy the history of Sheffield near villa rentals

Sheffield, named for the River Sheaf, was founded in the early 12th century. The area near holiday homes is best known for its steel, so much so that Geoffrey Chaucer mentioned quality Sheffield knives in his writings. The industry was especially active during the Industrial Revolution. Sheffield remains the biggest cutlery producer in the U.K. outside of London. The Metalwork Collection at Museums Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery offers a full day of learning about steel. Sheffield has a rich history outside of steel, too. Sheffield Cathedral and the centuries-old Bishops’ House attract many visitors each year, as does Beauchief Abbey, which is partially dedicated to St Thomas à Becket. Shepherd Wheel is a working museum that houses two historical grindstones. The water wheel that powered those grindstones is also on display and is made of bronze, wood and iron.
