Aqueducts & Viaducts of Britain

Details

Between July 1761 when a navigable aqueduct opened on the Bridgewater Canal Aqueduct at Barton-upon-Irwell, and July 1963, date of the completion of the Thelwall Viaduct on the M6 near Warrington, Britain would see the construction of a great number of aqueducts and viaducts. Emblems of the industrial age, from unassuming arches built to carry canals over streams to immense multi-span structures conveying railways across estuaries or roads above plains, each bridge has its own distinctive history and character. This book charts the ambitions of the engineers who designed them, the endurance of the labourers who built them and the impact that they have made upon the face of the nation. Numerous photographs illustrate the text, and grid references give a guide to the bridges' locations.
