The following is a list and timeline of innovations as well as inventions and discoveries that involved British people or the United Kingdom including predecessor states in the history of the formation of the United list covers innovation and invention in the mechanical, electronic, and industrial fields, as well as medicine, military devices and theory, artistic and scientific.

Among these tools is a number of “taps” used in threading holes for screws, these being the same in principle as the tools employed to-day. Another exhibit is George Stephenson’s report on the Stockton and Darlington Railway, dated January, This is the original report, written in a school exercise book.

In the same year George Stephenson used a four-coupled engine and tried to secure that his four-coupled engine.

When the Stockton and Darlington Railway was opened for public business inboth people and goods were pulled by Stephenson's steam wagon, the Locomotion.

Of course, this is the origin of the term "locomotive" which we still use today. Other railway companies quickly began to form.The Locomotive Magazine & Railway Carriage & Wagon Review Volume 17 () Key to all Volumes. Number (14 January ) Railway notes.

The removal of compounding and the rise of the T were also noted. Steam locomotion on common roads had been an idea of William Murdock [q. v.], one of Watt's most trusty assistants, and he made a working model of a steam carriage in Richard Trevithick [q.

v.] took up the question inconstructing a carriage which ran in Cornwall, and was shown in London for a few days.
