Now, it is over to you to find out about how the Industrial Revolution affected Beeston. Use your skills of looking at primary and secondary sources to find out what Beeston was like. The sheets below will  help you to do this. Either write them on the sheet, or present it neatly on a piece of paper (you could do this as a poster, or use the computer to create a presentation or poster).
