Describe the process of gradual growth of factories in England in the light of problems it faced.
THE earliest factories in England come up by the 1730s. Their number multiplied in the late 18th century. A series of inventions in 18th century increased the efficiency of each step of the production process. They enhanced the output per worker, enabling each worker to produce more. With the creation of cotton mill by Richard Arkwright, all the processes of cloth production were brought together under one roof and management. This allowed a more careful supervision of the production process, a watch over quality, and the regulation of labour, all of which had been difficult to do when production was in the countryside.
