Episode 2

How volunteers are helping to restore the machines that powered Britain. Dave and Si help to rebuild an early traction engine and restore a rare barge, once used to transport coal.

The Hairy Bikers continue their journey around Britain, meeting passionate, skilled heritage volunteers and taking part in exciting restoration projects of our industrial past.

It is full steam ahead in Wiltshire as they help rebuild an early traction engine before seeing how they revolutionised farming. In Derbyshire, the duo tackle a hundred-year-old cotton spinning mule that has laid dormant for decades, and attempt to weave their own Hairy Biker cloth. And in Cheshire, they restore a rare barge, once used to transport coal on Britain's canals.
