Inventors and Inventions from Yorkshire

Teachers' notes

This resource is about some of the inventors and innovators from the Wakefield area and other Yorkshire towns who made a name for themselves. Some, like Joseph Hansom, are known because of their inventions while others such as Charles Waterton did not patent what they had developed and are generally better known for other things - in Waterton's case for being a local character!

There is a picture quiz for students to take when they have learned about each inventor.
