Civil Engineering Heritage: London and the Thames Valley


This book deals with the civil engineering heritage of the capital and Thames Valley. The development of London has attracted the design and construction skills of a range of eminent civil engineers and contractors. The work of Sir Marc and I K Brunel, the Rennie family, Robert Stephenson, William Cubitt, Sir Joseph Bazelgette, and many others is included.

The books in this series have all been designed specifically as guide books for exploring these landmarks, and provide the reader with a ticket into Britain’s engineering history.
