It features superbly detailed historic images of miners working at the coal face, steel workers hand-charging at furnaces, wagon-builders and boiler makers on the shop floor. Together they provide a unique insight into the skills, exertion and ingenuity of workers at the height of the Industrial Revolution.

This is an opportunity to view rarely seen photographs from our Local Studies and Archives collections.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Workshop of the Empire are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
