4.0 out of 5 stars On the fringes of the industrial revolution 5 Feb 2013
By Sixtus
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This volume has attempted a wide survey of industry in a limited area. As one who
was brought up in the Medway valley I found it fascinating in taking me back through
the origins of the industrial sites of the area - many of which had been abandoned
by the time I encountered them (the 1940s and 50s). Where I would take issue with
the contributors is on their perhaps antedating the decline. New factories often
grew up to replace old and my visits over the past half century suggest a process of reduction rather than abolition. Some small firms have sprung up to provide local unemployment and Lafarge are planning a
new eco-friendly cement works at Snodland. Not everyone has become a commuter. Twentieth-century industry in the area is thus brushed aside perhaps too simply. Nevertheless, a valuable historical work!

I was brought up in the Medway Area and so this is a fascinating insight into the background of muck that I knew.
