The lives of former industrial workers in Sheffield will be brought to life at a heritage open day this weekend.

People can learn about grinders, who worked at waterwheels such as Shepherd Wheel in Whiteley Woods, at the wheel on Saturday.

Tours of historical waterwheels that are undergoing restoration will also be on offer at the Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet on Sunday.
