The Traditional Heritage Museum

605 Ecclesall Road
South Yorkshire
S11 8PR

The Museum is situated in the former hall of Endcliffe Methodist Church on Ecclesall Road (A652) just below Hunters Bar. It comprises a fascinating collection of artefacts, housed in small reconstructed workshops representing typical Sheffield trades - filemaking, horn scalepressing, grinding, silversmithing engraving, etc.

In addition, there is a basketmaking shop, a clog maker's shop, a chemist's and an optician's shop, together with small domestic rooms, a grocer's shop, a typical 'corner shop', an electrical retailer and a pawnbroker's shop.

The collection provides a unique picture of handcrafted trades and domestic life and work in the period 1850 - 1950 and is of educational and general interest to visitors of all ages as well as to industrial archaeologists, trade organisations and local historians.

The Museum has a very active educational outreach programme and local service for schools.
