Heritage Open Days Walk: Boulsover Country


Join us for a stroll from Forge Dam to Shepherd Wheel Workshop and hear the story of how Sheffield cutler Thomas Boulsover changed the world with his invention of Old Sheffield Plate.

You’ll see how many features of this part of Porter Valley are due to Boulsover, including Forge Dam, and end at the unique working example of Sheffield’s grinding industry, Shepherd Wheel.

The walk is suitable for families with pushchairs and wheelchair users.

This event is part of Heritage Open Days.
