Great engineers 8: James Brindley

The making of canals is a very important branch of structural engineering. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that the Suez and Panama canals are among the greatest engineering exploits ever performed. The subject of the present article has no such great work to his credit, but his name is of importance in the history of engineering because he was the chief pioneer of canal construction, and when one considers the limited means at his disposal, his achievement is a very remarkable one.
