Originally built around 1797, Thornhill Brigg Mill was attacked during the Plug Riots of August 1842. Workers fearing the introduction of steam power would put them out of work marched from town totown removing the plugs from the boilers of the mills and emptying the mill dams as they passed, bringing production to a halt. The mill was destroyed in 1858 and again in 1888.

All my career I have helped agencies build their brands and grow. I thought it would be worthwhile sharing the three key lessons I've learnt over the years. 1. Don't try and be all things to allpeople. Most agencies, certainly in the regions, work across a broad range of sectors and provide a mix of services. This usually leads to talk about the value of the generalist or the creation of a seemingly endless stream of specialist offerings, often across a small team.
