Dundee | United Kingdom
The ground shakes when the factory thunders into life. Carding machines, drawing frames, spinning machines and weaving looms comb, stretch, whirl, spin and weave the very same thread for which Dundee was once famous. Jute. In the late 19th century the Scottish port had more jute factories than ...

Lanark | United Kingdom
A small village nestles in the heart of a romantic landscape, and yet cotton was once manufactured here in large quantities. New Lanark was created for this very reason alone. The powerful currents of the River Clyde were the driving force behind Scotland's most profitable spinning mills, the first ...

Llanberis | United Kingdom
How do you steal a mountain? You knock it off. That’s the answer you’d get from a Welshman. The Welsh speak from experience. In North Wales they knocked off mountains en masse – in the form of hundreds of slate quarries. In the 19th century the slate tiles on almost every roof in Britain had been ...

London | United Kingdom
This steam engine is so huge that you can walk under its beams standing upright – whilst it’s puffing away and rising and sinking. Originally it was used to pump water in west London. Now it is the pride of the Kew Bridge Steam Museum, along with eight other powerful steam engines. Six of them are ...

Northwich | United Kingdom
What a back-breaking job! Standing bent over a huge steaming saltpan the whole day, regulating the flow of brine and the temperature of the furnaces, raking the salt, filling the tubs and baking it dry. Working in a traditional salt-works was anything but a push-over! Salt-making was not only ...

Perth | United Kingdom
The noise of the web and carding machines thwart any normal conversation. That is why the women who operate the machines use their own sign language to communicate. This special language is also understood by the children, whose tasks include crawling under the running machines to clean them…  ...

Port Sunlight | United Kingdom
A walk through Port Sunlight is like a journey through England’s architectural heritage set in a beautiful parkland setting. The picturesque character of this late 19th century garden village is no coincidence. Its founder, William Hesketh Lever (1851-1925) built Port Sunlight to house the workers ...

Sheffield | United Kingdom
Knives, saws, scythes, files, razor blades, cutlery. No doubt about it, Sheffield is the English equivalent of Solingen. What began with small workshops in the 16th century quickly developed into the brand mark of an up-and-coming industrial city. Later Sheffield was to pioneer modern steel ...

Telford | United Kingdom
Length: 30.6 metres. Height: 16.75 metres. Weight: 378 tons. These are the basic facts about the Iron Bridge, which spans the Severn Valley in Telford. But who can regard the history of the first ever iron bridge in mere statistics? It is universally recognised as the symbol of the industrial ...

Wakefield | United Kingdom
You had better dress up warm here. For you’ll be going 140 metres underground. And below the earth it is cold, damp and dark. The National Coalmining Museum for England, near Overton in West Yorkshire, is located in one of the oldest collieries in the United Kingdom. Here visitors can don a miner’s ...

Waltham Abbey | United Kingdom
If you put saltpetre, charcoal and sulphur together the result is an explosive mixture. Gunpowder changed the face of the world. One of the main contributors was the Royal Gunpowder Mills in Essex. For 300 years the works near Waltham Abbey researched and produced almost everything to do ammunition ...

Altena | Germany
It’s an all rounder: tough, delicate, shining, decorative. It’s always flexible and it’s quite simply indispensable in everyday life. This amazing material is wire and everybody knows what that is. But if the only thing you associate with the term is barbed wire or wire netting you’re in for a huge ...

The director of the Electoral State of Saxony Saline Baths in Dürrenberg, Johann Gottfried Borlach, was a stubborn man. He had people drilling for saline sources for 19 years. Finally, on 15th September 1763, he struck lucky at a depth of 223 metres. The discovery turned a hitherto obscure place ...

Smoking chimneys and industrial spires towering into the heavens! Not here! The Luisenhütte in Balve-Wocklum looks almost cosy. No steel, no complicated tangles of pipes, no gigantic engine house. Instead there’s an angular half-timbered quarry-stone building set amongst quiet trees, and a nearby ...
