    What the English/Anglo people pioneered & gave to the entire world throughout the 18th century is absolutely amazing. People and their culture make the ultimate difference, not just the things created.

    I initially read it as, "…BLASTS Hill Victorian Town…" I was so confused. Sigh, I need coffee. Anyway, thanks for the videos, Rick! I'm finally moving to the UK this year, and your videos are a big reason why.

    Sorry Rick have to correct you. The ‘Black Country’ was known as the workshop of the world! Now? Not so much. Love your vids BTW
