It is impossible to say when the first road was built as many have been lost or moved over the millenia. The oldest surviving road in Britain is thought to be The Ridgeway… in Wiltshire which is well over 5000 years old.
Think about those inspired words: We are not going to find God in handmade cathedrals, temples, churches, shrines or in other physical edifices of worship. The Great Cre…ator of the universe is not to be confined to lifeless human structures, no matter how lavish they may be. King Solomon, at the time of the dedication of the temple he had built in Jerusalem, prayed: “Will God truly dwell upon the earth? Look! The heavens, yes, the heaven of the heavens, themselves cannot contain you; how much less, then, this house that I have built!” (1 Ki. 8:27) Solomon wisely recognized the relationship of God to earth and buildings.

Medieval cathedrals were built essentially by hand, since there was no motorized equipment to make the job easier, so they took an enormous amount of work and generations of l…abor. It was very slow.
Cathedrals were originally an expression of sexual frustration in the early 7th Century, however they developed into a place of religious enlightenment. This change was brough…t about by the horny vicar's going to Cathedrals to pray for hot single Russian girls to make love to. (these same Russian girls are now available on sites, such as redtube)

It is commonly held that the first canal built in Britain was the Bridgewater Canal, commissioned by Francis Egerton, the third Duke of Bridgewater to carry coal from his mine…s at Worsley in Lancashire into the industrial areas of the city of Manchester. The engineer was James Brindley and it was seen as a miracle of the early industrial age. It opened in July 1761 and has its place in history as the first true canal to be built in Britain in that it did not follow an existing natural watercourse. There are counter claims that the Sankey Canal, which was also built primarily to transport coal to serve the growing Liverpool chemical industry, was actually the first but there is no doubt that it was the Bridgewater Canal, or the "Duke's Cut", was the one that inspired an era of canal building that continued until the 1830s.
I have been told on many accounts that the first ever factory was built in Derby, near the River Derwent, 'The Old Silk Mill' I've heard people call it, it's also a museum (fr…ee entry) and the sign outside says 'Silk Mill' so I'm guessing it made silk lol
First mosque built in the UK 150 years ago Islam has been known in England for a long time; there are references to Islamic scholars in the Prologue to Chaucer's Canterbury …Tales (1386). Following the anti-Islamic frenzy of the Crusades, Britain became friendly with some Islamic countries. Queen Elizabeth I, for example, asked the Ottoman Sultan Murad for naval assistance against the Spaniard Armada. The first recorded Englishman to become a Muslim was John Nelson, who converted to Islam at some point in the 16th Century. A 1641 document refers to "a sect of Mahomatens" being "discovered here in London". There were also a few conversions to Islam during the period, and a few years later, in 1649, came the first English version of the Qur'an, by Alexander Ross. In the 18th and 19th Centuries there were a number of converts to Islam amongst the English upper classes, including Edward Montagu, son of the ambassador to Turkey. The first large group of Muslims in Britain arrived about 300 years ago. They were sailors recruited in India to work for the East India Company, and so it's not surprising that the first Muslim communities were found in port towns. Ships' cooks came too, many of them from Sylhet in what is now Bangladesh. There are records of Sylhetis working in London restaurants as early as 1873. Some Muslim sailors decided to stay in Britain and simply left their ships without going through any formal immigration procedure. The next wave of Muslim immigration to Britain followed the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. The increase in trade caused a demand for men to work in ports and on ships. Most of these immigrants came from the Yemen, probably because Aden was the main refuelling stop for ships between Britain and the Far East, and many of the seamen later settled in the port cities of Cardiff, Liverpool, South Shields, Hull, and London. There are now an estimated 70-80,000 Yemenis living in Britain, who form the longest-established Muslim group in Britain. An example is the Yemeni community of South Shields, which began at the end of the 19th century when Yemenis working as stokers on steamships moved ashore and set up boarding houses in the dock area. The first mosque in Britain is recorded as having been at 2 Glyn Rhondda Street, Cardiff, in 1860.
Coventry's First cathedral, St Mary's, was built in 1043
The first stone castle built in Britain was the Tower of London in 1078 thou castles existed much earlier in Europe but as they sprung up so fast and historical records from t…his era are not very detailed it is hard to pinpoint the first castle. The stone castle and keep origionated in France but the motte and bailey had been in use much earlier and iron age hill forts are even seen as precursors to that.
