Wales and West Central England
First published in 1985, this new edition of Civil Engineering Heritage: Wales and West Central England covers Wales and the Western part of central England from Cheshire in the north to just south of Bristol. This book has been substantially revised and updated to provide a much greater spread and depth of coverage, and describes many examples of our civil engineering heritage. In recent years, people have become more aware of the value of their local and national heritage and what the civil engineering profession has done over the years for the environment and the economy.
