Man of Iron
This book from Julian Glover is an enthralling account of a shepherd boy who changed the world with his engineering accomplishments, most of which we still benefit from today. The first book in 17 years about Thomas Telford, this tells the story of the incredible feats that Telford achieved in his life. His local relevance in Shropshire is due to the incredible work he completed here, converting Shrewsbury Castle from a ruin, building churches all around the County and using Iron cast in Telford he set about the construction of an aqueduct at Longden Upon Tern. These were just some of Telford's achievements local to the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage site. His internationally recognised achievements also include Caledonian Canal in Scotland and the aqueducts at Chirk and, most impressively, Pontcysllte, near Llangollen. This is not a book to be missed, whether it be due to local interest or to understand the life of an incredible engineer.
