Many innovative ideas were discussed and new inventions demonstrated which will be highlighted on this tour particularly George Stephenson's Miner’s Lamp, the Rocket, Swan’s Electric Light, the Turbinia and the High Level Bridge.



This tour will bring to life the many local people and their new and exciting inventions.
