The Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, which is one of Sheffield's industrial museums, was initially donated to the city in 1935 by the Tyzack Sons & Turner and was restored to serve as a monument to the craftsmen of the city. Compared to the Ironbridge Gorge Museum, the Abbeydale is much less famous, yet its signifcance lies in its modest appearance and its interior features, specifically the furnace in which the first steel-making techniques were practiced. In writing about the developments experienced by the Sheffield steel industry, the first challenge involves explaining the emerge of steel manufacture in a locality that seemingly appears to have less potential. The second challenge involves explaining how Sheffield obtained its attributes. This chapter looks into factory conditions, company structure, company strategy, and other such determinants for operations in the Steel City.
