Part A :

Good afternoon everybody and welcome to Riverside Industrial Village.

大家下午好,欢迎来到滨江工业村。

To start your visit, I'm just going to give you a brief account of the history of the museum before letting you roam about on your own.

为了让您开始参观,在你自己漫步之前,我只是想给你介绍一下关于博物馆的简短的历史。

I won't keep you long.OK?

我不会耽误你们很长时间。好吗?

Now,from where we're standing you've got a good view of the river over there.

现在,从我们站的地方来看,对于那边的河,你有一个很好的视野。

And it was because of this fast-flowing water that this site was a natural place for manufacturing works.

这是因为这个快速流动的水,这个地方是一个制造业自然生产的地方。

The water and the availability of raw materials in the area, like minerals and iron ore, and also the abundance of local fuels, like coal and firewood, all made this site suitable for industry from a very early time.

水、该地区可获得的原材料,如矿物和铁矿石,以及当地燃料充足,像煤和柴,都使这个地方从很早的时候开始,就适合工业生产。

Water was the main source of power for the early industries and some of the water wheels were first established in the twelfth century, would you believe?

水是早期工业的主要动力来源,而一些水轮子最早是在十二个世纪建立的,你会相信吗?

At that time, local craftsmen first built an iron forge just behind the village here,on the bend in the river.

当时,当地工匠先在村庄后面建一个铁炉,在河流弯曲的地方。

By the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the region's rivers supported more than 160 water mills,and many of these continued to operate well into the nineteenth century.

在十七和十八世纪,地区河流支持超过一百六十个水车——许多水车一直运行到十九世纪。

But then the steam engine was invented and then the railways came and the centres of industry were able to move away from the rivers and the countryside and into the towns.

但后来,蒸汽机发明了,铁路又来了,随后工业能从河流和乡村移到城镇。

So industrial villages like this one became very rare.

所以,像这样的工业村变得非常稀少。

So that's the history for you.

所以这就是说给你们听的历史。

If you'd like any more information, you can ask me some questions, or you can read further in our excellent guidebook.

如果你想了解更多的信息,你可以问我一些问题,或者你可以在我们棒棒的指南书中读到更多的信息。

Now I'm going to give you a plan of the site and I'd just like to point out where everything is and then you can take a look at everything for yourself.

现在我要给你们这个地方的平面图,我会指出所有的东西所在的地方,然后你可以自己去参观所有的东西。

I've already pointed out the river, which is on the left.

我已经指出了这条河,它在左边。

And of course,running along the bottom is Woodside Road,got it?

当然,沿着底部的是赛德路,明白了吗?

OK, now, we're standing at the entrance,see it at the bottom, and immediately to our right is the Ticket Office.

You won't need that because you've got your group booking, but just past it are the toilets-always good to know where they are.

好,现在我们站在门口,看到在底部,并立我们的右边是售票处。你们不需要,因为你们有团体预约,但只是过去一点就是厕所一知道它们在哪里总是很好的。

In front of us is the car park,as you can see,and to the left,by the entry gate is the Gift Shop.
