Thank you very much for your corrections. Here are a few more sentences on the same subject I'd like you to check.

1)The Industrial Revolution brought several changes to Britain. First of all, it caused an enormous increase in production and consequently in the total wealth of the country.
2) The introduction of the steam-engine enabled Britain to manufacture cloth more cheaply than elsewhere, though it put many people out of work. 3) Secondly, there was a high concentration of factories in the north of England and in the Midlands since these areas were rich in natural resources.
4) The shifting of population from the south to the north led to the construction of small towns, the so-called mushroom towns, to house the workers.
5) Thirdly, there were no precise regulations concerning working conditions, wages and hours of work. In 1799 the Combination Acts were passed, which made meetings of workers illegal.
6) This allowed employers to keep wages low and left them free from any interference and supervision by the State. As a consequence, workers began to attack factories and destroy machinery.
7) The worst of these episodes were due to the “Luddites” in the years 1811-1812. The name derived from Ned Ludd, the leader of the riots.
8) To protect the machines and control the mobs the government decided to make machine-breaking punishable by death.
9)In 1833 rules were laid down to regulate working conditions and factories were subjected to inspections. The transport system was improved both by water and across land.
