FRED DIBNAH’S INDUSTRIAL COLLECTION Mills and factories; mines and quarries; iron foundries and steel works. Fred had a passion for Britain’s industrial past and he never tired of reminding us of the industrial genius that made Britain the ‘workshop of the world.’ Here he tells us the stories of Britain’s biggest industries as he takes us on a tour of his favourite industrial heritage sites. THE INDUSTRIAL LANDSCAPE Fred was born in Bolton, Lancashire in 1938 and as a boy he fell in love with the decaying industrial landscape around him. It was a love that was to stay with him for the rest of his life. Fred paints a vivid picture of the Lancashire he grew up in before embarking on a journey around the industrial Britain of yesterday taking in Armley Mills in Leeds, North of England Open Air Museum at Beamish, Coldharbour Mill in Devon, Etruria Industrial Museum, Helmshore Textile Museum, Hook Norton Brewery, Quarry Bank Mill, Queen Street Mill in Burnley, Tees Cottage Pumping Station, Wetheriggs Country Pottery and Wigan Pier. RICHES BENEATH THE EARTH When Fred was a lad coal was king and Britain still had a flourishing mining industry. Mining and all the engineering that was involved always fascinated Fred – not just coal, but lead, tin, iron ore and all the riches from beneath the earth that provided the raw materials for our industrial society. Filmed on location at Big Pit National Mining Museum, Geevor Tin Mine, Llechwedd Slate Caverns, National Coal Mining Museum, North of England Lead Mining Museum, Scottish Mining Museum, Welsh Slate Museum and Wet Earth Colliery, Fred gives us his own unique and highly personal history of mining in Britain. IRON AND STEEL From Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire, often described as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution, to a modern forge in Sheffield, Fred takes us around the country to tell us about the history of iron and steel making and to have a look at some of the processes. Share Fred’s excitement and watch the sparks fly with him as he visits Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, Independent Forgings and Kelham Island Museum in Sheffield, Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, Finch Foundry in Devon, Ironbridge Gorge Museums and Workington Steel Works.
