The Museum at Hathersage shows the collection of David Mellor cutlery design, housed in the Round Building with 'bicycle wheel' steel structure roof.  David Mellor is internationally famous for cutlery design but also designed our traffic lights!  You can see some of them outside, along with his 1966 design of the sqaure pillar box for the Post Office.  The factory is open for viewing on weekdays and you can see David Mellor cutlery being made.

There's also a cafe and shop, both of which are very much worth visiting.  Plenty of parking too.  A highly recommended morning or afternoon can be spent here.
