The Industrial Revolution saw rapid industrial growth in the mid-18th to mid-19th centuries, with the North West of England as its birthplace.

Wind and water energy sources preceded coal, resulting in economic growth, job opportunities and dangerous working conditions regulated by the 1833 Factory Act.
