Episode Summary

EDIT
Derwentcote, County Durham
AIRED:
The Furnace in the Forest Tony Robinson and the team travel to Derwentcote in Durham, where they explore the Industrial Revolution's impact on the region by digging through the undergrowth to search for old furnaces and forges. Their search is also helped by the diary of an 18th-century industrial spy, and records from the time help shed light on how the area's cottage industries gave way to the power of expanding cities such as Sheffield.moreless

      • Tony: Lovely day for a peaceful quiet walk in these tranquil woods deep in the heart of County Durham, but believe it or not this forest hides an industrial complex that was behind the birth of a revolution in this country. Although today this is pretty much all that's left of Derwentcote, a site making iron and steel that found its way right across the British Empire. We do know that there was an exciting hodgepodge of processes going on all over this one site the mini industrial revolution, and we've got just three days to unravel it, that is if we can get at the archaeology. (Starts up weed cutter) it's a good thing I brought this.


      • Tony: Hidden under this camouflage was a complex that was a tour de force in the emerging British steel industry


      • Tony: To make metal, as well as heat and fire you need water. So to understand how water was used here Stewart's got straight into a leat, and he's hitting it with a stick. Very scientific.
