This climate of economic growth, new ideas and innovations (not only in farming, but in science as well), spare capital to invest and an unemployed rural work-force coupled with the abundant and easy to obtain natural raw materials, like coal and iron ore fed the early industrial revolution. Another key factor was the British weather - rain to feed the rivers that turned the water-wheels of the early mills and factories...... ]
