The Canal Pioneers – Canal Construction

The Canal Pioneers’ recounts the long and fascinating history of canals, from their earliest use for transportation to the end of the 19th century. The story includes the construction of some of the world’s most impressive canal systems, such as the Grand Canal of China and France’s Canal du Midi, which inspired the creation of similar waterways in other countries, including Britain and North America.

Canals played a vital role in Britain’s industrial revolution, thanks to the ingenuity of engineers like James Brindley, William Jessop, and Thomas Telford. The book showcases the many innovations that shaped canal development, including the use of cast iron for bridges and aqueducts, inclined planes, and vertical lifts. It is a thrilling tale of human achievement and perseverance.
