Richard Marks - Trouble at Mill: Life in the Victorian Factories
Richard Marks is a published historian based in Berkshire who specialises in industrial and railway history and the history of science. His current areas include industrial development in the Victorian period, and the development of the railway and canal systems in Britain in the 19th Century.

William Blake famously wrote about the ‘dark satanic mills’ of Victorian Britain, but was this really the case? In this talk we will explore what it was like to work in Victorian factories and the relationship between the workers and factory owners. We will discover why the trade unions were formed and what they achieved. Find out more as we go through the Victorian factory gates
