Thank you very much for your corrections. I still have a few alternatives for you to check.

1) The demand for new clothes created the necessity (better: caused the development of new machinery?) to invent machinery for cloth-making.
2) New factories were built (sprang up is also possible?) as a consequence of the development of steam-power and the introduction of the steam engine. 3) The population shifted from the south to the north of England since these areas were rich in natural resources.
4)The country was deserted.
Workers asked for precise regulations concerning working conditions, hours and wages. In particular, they asked for higher wages and a reduction of the working hours.
5) New steam-powered (driven?) machinery was invented. Transport became faster thanks to the invention of steam trains.
6) Before the industrial revolution the power to drive machinery was water. Then the steam power was introduced.
7) There weren't any regulations concerning working conditions (and not of work?)
