  • The enlightened revolution - Shropshire Business Today
    period the single biggest factor that began to grow the economic productivity of the nation which included the ironmasters of Shropshire as much as anyone else was knowledge Water and steam may have powered the mills and machinery of Coalbrookdale but it was knowledge that enabled them to work in ever more sophisticated and profitable ways When Abraham Darby I took over the furnace at Coalbrookdale around September 1708 he came already armed with both technical ability and knowledge One of his greatest achievements was to use coke as a fuel for producing iron in a way that was economically viable something that in the space of a generation was to transform the industrial activity of the country It seems possible that before leaving Bristol for Coalbrookdale Darby could have encountered Quakers from Broseley who would have been able to give him information about the furnace at Coalbrookdale But this was not happy accident or chance he had previously been apprenticed to malt mill makers in Bristol who had for many years been successfully using coke and not charcoal as fuel He learnt his trade and began to understand how to apply his knowledge to other more lucrative areas such as iron making On arrival at Coalbrookdale it took him only around five months to begin producing iron with coke a period so short that it would seem to indicate that he had excellent prior knowledge of how successful his venture was likely to be However Abraham Darby s knowledge was not necessarily all gained first hand As a Quaker he was very active in the regular series of meetings that on a weekly monthly quarterly and annual basis brought together Quakers from all over the country It seems possible that before leaving Bristol for Coalbrookdale he could have encountered
