SIHG Zoom Meeting: Trouble at Mill: Life in the Victorian Factories

Thursday, 2 November, 2023 - 10:00

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 the factory owners. We will discover why trade unions were formed and what they achieved. Find out more as we go through the Victorian factory gates with Richard Mark, freelance professional historian.
