While it may be known for its landscape, mills and mines, the county of Yorkshire is undergoing a modern industrial revolution, powered by leading-edge innovations pioneered within its borders. At 2.9 million acres, Yorkshire is Britain’s largest county but remains the third least populated. Given its abundance of natural resources and impressive river network, the Yorkshire region has strong links with manufacturing dating back to the Industrial Revolution. With such a pedigree, it is unsurprising that food & drink and metal products still account for more than a third of Yorkshire’s manufacturing output. The food & drink sector alone generates more than £3.4 billion for the region. Yet, following the closure of the region’s mines, mills and plants, an economy once dominated by heavy industry and textiles is slowly transitioning into one that is far more diverse, high-tech and sustainable.
