Description
From the handsome collection of locomotives at the National Railway Museum in York to the majestic Forth River bridges in Scotland, from the graceful windmills of Norfolk and Suffolk to the soaring trusswork of London's Paddington Station, this book offers both a fascinating photographic chronicle of Britain's industrial heritage and a practical region-by-region guide to finding such 18th- and 19th-century structures. Anthony Burton notes that, just a few decades ago, many of the sites in this book were gently crumbling into ruin, and interest in them was viewed with some suspicion; now, these relics of the Industrial Revolution have become world heritage sites, their engines rebuilt and polished and running again for crowds of eager onlookers.
