Details

A Scottish shepherd’s son, Thomas Telford was the brilliant engineer responsible for major reconstruction work in his homeland and for transforming the road and canal network across Britain. Burton’s biography of the ‘Colossus of Roads’ highlights his achievements, including designing the Menai suspension bridge and the Caledonian Canal, while also depicting a humble, altruistic man interested in poetry and culture.
