Joseph Locke

Civil Engineer and Railway Builder 1805–1860

Anthony Burton

Joseph Locke was one of the great trio of railway engineers with Robert Stephenson and Isambard Kingdom Brunel. This biography traces his background in a mine-owning family, his apprenticeship with George Stephenson, and his pioneering work on the Grand Junction Railway. It tells how his growing reputation led to commissions in continental Europe, and brought wealth that enabled him to purchase an estate in Devon, where he became a Liberal MP.
