mills Fred Dibnah's Age Of Steam

Fred Dibnah's Age Of Steam produced in 2003, is currently being repeated on BBC2. The programme aired on 19th Jan 2004, called Driving The Wheels Of Industry although exploring the role played by steam power in the extraordinary expansion of industrial Britain in the 18th and 19th centuries and into the 20th Century, started predictably enough with what went before. In this case it was water power, and Fred visited Quarry Bank mill, the huge water powered cotton mill. Also covered was the (steam powered) Etruscan mill, which ground flint and bone for the potteries.
