Day 3

Review yesterday’s maps.  What industry interests you the most and why?

Dartford experienced extraordinary change during the Victorian era.  For today's work. I would like you to research one of the industries that brought change to Dartford. 

What did these companies do?  How did they service the local or broader communities?  Did they rely on the railway and if so, why?

Use these links to help with your research which can be presented as a poster, a booklet or even a mind map.  If you have any budding historians in your family, could you interview them about any of the industries that once operated in Dartford?

Make your research interesting, informative and colourful.  Remember to link this to our overall theme of what the Victorians did for us and how industry changed Dartford.
