The 1820s was the most productive period for British invention with the development of cement, the electric motor and the lawnmower, according to a new poll.

The decade also gave rise to waterproof material and George Stephenson’s passenger railway, and overall accounted for a tenth of the biggest breakthroughs in 350 years of British innovation, the survey found.

It was followed by the 1880s which saw four major inventions – the light bulb, steam turbine, safety bicycle and pneumatic tyre – and the 1960s when hip replacements, carbon fibre, the collapsible baby buggy and the ATM were born.
