Volunteer Showcase Exhibition

Benjamin Huntsman - Laying the Foundation of The Steel City

We have a team of committed, passionate and knowledgeable volunteers across Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust.  You may have already met some on your visit today. When we were approached by two, Mick and Jane, who enthusiastically shared their idea for a display exploring a different part of the Abbeydale story, a plan quickly developed.  This is the final result of their hard work.

From photographing all four corners of the city, researching new ideas and getting totally immersed in collections – this has been a truly volunteer led display. Thank you Mick and Jane for your research, development and generosity of time.  We hope this is the first of many Volunteer Showcase exhibitions, and hope you enjoy discovering more about Benjamin Huntsman.

The display introduces you to the life, work and legacy of Benjamin Huntsman in Sheffield.

See it at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet.
