    ‘The expansion of heavy industry from c.1850 was the key turning point in making Britain a fully industrial society by 1914.” How far do you agree with this judgement on the process of change over the period 1780-1914?

    I have made a plan based around the possible key turning points - textiles, heavies (obv), transport. Then trade, role of the state etc. I think that the factors are all dependent on each other but looking back to a root cause its the development of textiles cos that created the basic structure for further growth eg. towns, factories. and also the steam engine. Could anybody give me any advice, anything at all, on what to include, HOW to include - I'm not sure how to say 'trade was important in making a FULLY ind society' not sure how it actually was... same goes for government legislation. Also how to thread an argument for textiles through it without it sounding one sided?

    Thanks.. sorry if that didn't make much sense, I am panicking a bit as the full draft is in for Thursday! x
