John Binding

Using details from Brunel's own drawings and notebooks, and archival sources, this text examines the building of the Royal Albert Bridge stretching across the River Tamar between Devon and Cornwall. It follows every part of the 13-year construction process and the difficulties faced by engineers at the time, as well as the the pomp and ceremony of the opening of the bridge by Prince Albert. The book brings the story up to modern times as it describes the work being done to the bridge to ensure that it continues in service for many years to come.
