Industries Which Made Britain Triumph – yes, it's had another title change but this is definitely the publisher's final one – is the third in my series of illustrated journeys through Britain's rich industrial heritage. A new collection of themes explores the farming industry, the steam fairground, the ceramics industry, roads and bridges, road transport, communication, and the printing industry amongst others. In revealing their stories, I have travelled far and wide exploring a new list of sites – from the country's last three remaining transporter bridges, to the new Queensferry Crossing nearing completion across the River Forth; from the surviving medieval tiling at Shaftsbury Abbey in Dorset, to modern ceramic production; from the birthplaces of the steam fairground in Norfolk, to the preserved gallopers and switchbacks in collections from Scarborough to Devon.
Like the first two, this book has 144 pages, illustrated throughout in colour.
The book is published by PiXZ/Halsgrove on 27 May 2017.
