Description - Thomas Telford by L. T. C. Rolt

The son of a shepherd from the Scottish borders, Thomas Telford rose to be the greatest engineer in Victorian Britain, who bridges, aqueducts, roads and canals combined aesthetic grace with brilliant engineering. His life spanned one of the most dynamic periods in British history, the decades of the industrial revolution, and no one contributed more to making Britain the 'workshop of the world'.
