A Victorian Power House: Industrialisation on Teeside and in south Durham 1825 to 1875
Our Price: £9.99

In mid-Victorian years, the development of Teeside and the assiciated boom in the coal and iron ore economies of south west Durham and the Cleveland Hills were wonders of an age of great achievements. This book examines this expansion in the basic industries of the North East and the accompanying transformation of the area's society and landscape. 

The author lived in the North East for 14 years. He lectured in the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, and is now an emeritus fellow of Jesus College, Oxford. He has already written on various aspects of North Eastern economic development, including studies of Armstrong Whitworth, Palmers Shipbuilding and Iron Company, and the Consett Iron Company.
