Introduction: The Industrial Revolution in Britain was possibly one of the greatest steps ever taken in human evolution. It changed the realm out of all recognition and made way for the steady industialisation of Europe and America and then the rest of the world. Being the first country to industrialise, Britain is rich the physical remains of this revolution and these monuments commemorate the people, both famous and unknown, who pioneered the development of industry and technology during the 18th and 19th centuries. However, the inevitable march of change as resulted in much loss and Britain has changed out of all recognition to the way it looked during the early years of the 20th century.
