The article focuses on a process of community formation that can be observed in the Cleveland ironstone field in the North Riding of Yorkshire, England from 1850 to 1914. The development of the Cleveland iron trade during the 1850-75 period offers historians of the Victorian era a chance to observe how an industrial revolution was orchestrated and experienced at the regional and community levels. The early Cleveland mining communities developed and defined themselves through struggle. The movement of people in and out of communities caused some disruptions, but also served to re-define and broaden them.
