Tony heads off on a 40 mile walk through the glorious Peak District and along the Derwent Valley. The landscape here is incredible; wild, dramatic and romantic. But it’s also the place where one of the most extraordinary chapters in British history unfolded; the Derwent Valley is the place where the Industrial Revolution began. This is a journey that reveals how Britain transformed itself from a nation of farmers into the industrial powerhouse of the world. Richard Arkwright established the world’s first factory in the quiet Peaks village of Cromford. Nearby is the building that would lay the foundations for today’s skyscrapers.
Brian Blessed introduces Tony to the joys – and the huge significance – of the local Cromford canal. Later he climbs to the heights of the Peaks, drawn by the chance to operate a huge steam winding engine that’s been working in the same place since 1829. He ends his incredible journey through economic time in Derby; the railway town’s secret crown jewel is the world’s first Engine Roundhouse, built in 1839 and now restored to its former glory.
