Summary

These are poems themed around industry and work. We meet a child mill worker from the 19th century. Live through the freezing chill of winter and a man’s desperate journey from Ireland to England in search of work in the 1920's. Dig down into the lives of mine workers down through the ages. Meet two people finding love against all the odds and across class divides hop picking in Kent. Walk with a bronze-age warrior giving up a life of battle as he attempts to find some inner peace. 

Give gratitude to farmers feeding us down through the ages and discover why some of those farming folk first left their villages to Come Work in Our Factories three centuries ago. Our lives today were built on the toil of our ancestors and their evocative stories are told in this poetry collection. I hope you feel my own love of our industrial past in these stories and my desire is that you enjoy these incredible personal stories that were waiting there to be told, in fact as much as I enjoyed writing this collection for you.
