The Ringing Grooves of Change

Brunel and the Coming of the Railway to Bath

Andrew Swift

Before the opening of the Great Western Railway, the journey from London to Bath by mail coach took 13 hours; the railway cut the journey time to four hours – it also ruined business for the coaching inns. Their decline is the first of many changes Swift describes, including the invasion of navvies and the cutting through Sydney Gardens; but the focus of the book is Brunel and the construction of his great railway with its bridges, viaducts and the Box Tunnel.
