Fred Dibnah traces the development of industrialisation in Britain. The Industrial Revolution was a time when Britain led the world. It was one of the most important periods in our history, but it has never really had the attention it deserves. Fred’s passion and enthusiasm for the machines of the past helped raise public awareness about the way they worked and their importance in history.
