During the Industrial Revolution, Britain was at the forefront of bridge innovation. Pioneering designers such as George and Robert Stephenson, Thomas Telford and Isambard Kingdom Brunel created Britain's rich bridge heritage that features many world firsts and we can learn much from their ground-breaking designs.

Written by an experienced bridge architect, this book includes:


  • An introduction to bridge aesthetics
  • An outline of British bridge development
  • Advice on parapet treatment and bridge lighting
  • A glossary of bridge terms


This book offers a comprehensive overview of how the best of British bridges marry aesthetic considerations with engineering ingenuity.

" I have read many books about bridges in Britain, but I still found plenty here that I was unaware of or which has not been celebrated previously in print. It surveys an excellent range of often exemplary bridges, at all scales great and small. "
