on 5XX Daventry

View in Radio Times

FOR the past few years, an industrial revolution as striking as any of the last cen tury, has been going on in the new coalfields of Kent. Luckily however, precautions .are being taken to ensure that the result is not another Black Country such as mars the North 01 England. One of the most interesting movements for keeping the coalfields from the worst evils of industrialism is the settlement which has been founded almost as soon as the coalfield, and which it is hoped will grow as the coal-field grows and provide the people living on it with a centre for recreation and education from the first, instead 01 coming into the midst of a highly industrialized area, as such settle ments as Toynbee Hall and Mansfield House have had to do. Miss Jan Macdonald will describe this interesting experunent in her talk this afternoon.
