LTC Rolt – A Bibliography

Rolt, also known as Lionel Thomas Caswall Rolt, was a notable British writer and engineer who played a significant role in the preservation of canals and railways in the United Kingdom. Born in 1910, Rolt developed a keen interest in industrial heritage at a young age and went on to study engineering at the University of Birmingham.

Although his career started in engineering, his love for writing eventually led to his success as an author. He wrote several books that focused on the history and preservation of canals and railways. Rolt’s most renowned work, “Narrow Boat,” was published in 1944 and is now considered a classic in the genre of canal literature.

Rolt was also an instrumental figure in preserving the UK’s industrial heritage. He helped found the Inland Waterways Association and the Talyllyn Railway Preservation Society, which played a vital role in revitalizing the canal network and railways across the country. Thanks to his efforts, future generations can enjoy these historic landmarks.

Although Rolt passed away in 1974, his legacy lives on through his writings and contributions to railway and canal preservation. His work has inspired many others to take an interest in industrial heritage and contribute to its preservation.
