Just received word that a new Fred book is being released in June:
Join engineer, steeplejack and beloved storyteller Fred Dibnah, as he takes you on a personal tour through industrial Britain.
Bringing to life landmark events from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century in his typically engaging and anecdotal style, Fred introduces the great inventors from the age of steam, describes the day-to-day operation of railways, mills, forges and factories, and paints a vivid picture of what life was like for the mill-hands, colliers and engineers who laboured in industrial Britain – the workshop of the world.
With a comprehensive gazetteer, which lists details of over 230 places of industrial interest – from steam railways and ships, to windmills and watermills – Foundries and Rolling Mills is a glorious portrait of Britain at the height of its industrial power, from one of our most revered figures.
It's currently available on pre-order with Amazon here
Does anyone have any more details of the book, sample pages etc?
