Fred Dibnah's World of Steam, Steel and Stone - Triple Pack
  • Description
    THE VICTORIAN GENTLEMAN The Victorian age with its lavish architectural splendour is the era that Fred wished he had lived through. Fred greatly admires the craftsmen who made quality things to last and he heads to locations such as Tower Bridge, Eastnor Castle and Leadenhall Market to view these incredible wrought iron masterpieces. PRESERVING OUR PAST Fred was best known for felling chimneys but that was the job he liked least. His real interest was in restoration work and it was this work that had the biggest influence on him. His greatest achievement was the restoration of a steam traction engine that took him over 27 years to complete. He also shows his admiration for volunteers all around the country who help to preserve the past. ALL STEAMED UP Fred always had a passion for steam powered engines and spent a large part of his life restoring and driving them. He shows his love of the Victorian era through his appreciation of what he could see whether it was a pumping station, steam boat or steam engine. Join him as he visits steam fairs and fairgrounds looking at some of the wonderful machines that travelled the roads of Britain. RICHES BENEATH THE EARTH Fred’s interest in the mining industry stemmed from his childhood and getting down to the coalface always fascinated him. This deep interest led him to start digging his own mine in his own back garden. But it was not just the extraction of coal that interested him but also tin and lead mining. Join him as he visits some of Britain’s leading mining museums and discover the superb exhibits they contain. CHANGING THE LANDSCAPE As Fred was growing up, his house was surrounded by bridges, canals, railway lines and tunnels and he was captivated by such great civil engineering projects and the lives of the men who changed the landscape of Britain. But it was not just Victorian achievements that he was interested in; he was also fascinated by the ancient landscape and the equipment and tools that early man used. GREAT BRITISH BUILDERS Follow Fred as he uncovers the craftsmanship behind some of Britain’s most magnificent and remarkable architectural designs in castles, cathedrals, and great houses. He was a great admirer of the working man and the skills he had and it fascinated him to discover how the builders and engineers created such masterpieces. He even has a go himself with some entertaining practical demonstrations.
