Civil Engineering Heritage Scotland (2 volume set)

Description

A gazetteer and guidebook to inform anyone with an interest in civilisation."
- Gordon Masterton, President 2005–06, The Institution of Civil Engineers

Together, these two books give a concise account of much of the surviving work of civil engineers throughout Scotland from pre-history up until 1980. It includes bridges, lighthouses, canals, roads, docks, harbours, piers, slips, breakwaters, railways, dams, reservoirs, hydro-power schemes and power stations.

The books contain about 500 illustrations, comprising exceptional new photographs and some historic views that have never been seen or printed before now. These include James Watt's drawing for his Rutherglen Bridge, a newly-found view of the Forth Bridge nearing completion, and Sir John Fowler's Braemore Estate Bridge at Gleann Mhor.

What Nikolaus Pevsner did for England through the Buildings of England series, Paxton and Shipway have now done for the works of civil engineering in Scotland. These are the final books in the Civil Engineering Heritage series put together by two renowned engineering historians and members of the Institution of Civil Engineers Panel for Historical Engineering Works.
 
Through this work we can now more fully appreciate the contributions of the creators of the transport, water and power infrastructure of Scotland from a historical, topographical, recreational and reference standpoint.
