How dangerous was the workplace in the Victorian era? Explore the perilous world of Victorian factories, where innovation and industry came at a deadly cost. From the deafening roar of spinning mules to the unforgiving machinery, workers faced constant danger. Discover the grim reality of daily life, where risk lurked around every corner in pursuit of progress and profit. Many stately homes conjure up visions of separate ‘upstairs’ and ‘downstairs’ realms, but at Erddig the 18th-century Yorke family took a different approach.
