Iron Bridge by Barrie Trinder
Book DescriptionThe first bridge ever to be built of iron, in 1779, is perhaps the most important industrial monument in Britain. The bridge changed the pattern of communications in its area, and attracted thousands of sightseers. The first book with this title marked the bicentenary in 1979, explaining the conception, design and construction of the bridge and its social impact. However, since then, so much new evidence has required a completely new account. Of the iron bridges built in the half century after 1781, this book identifies nearly twice as many as the first edition. The definitive history by the two authors best qualified to write it.

Shrewsbury is an archetypal 'city on a hill', the spires and towers of its churches crowning a sandstone bluff. This study examines the ways in which suburbs were shaped by government, looks at the varying roles of architects and builders, and analyses the extension of utilities, transport networks, sporting facilities, shops and churches.
