Linking London with Bristol challenged the greatest engineers of the canal and railway ages.
The protracted construction of the Stroudwater Navigation and the Thames & Severn Canal was one of a significant early attempt to provide a transport alternative to coastal shipping, and the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal is an example of a ship canal bringing vessels to an inland port by avoiding a difficult river passage. John Rennie’s work on the Kennet & Avon Canal and Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s engineering of the Great Western Railway are major monuments of industrial history.
