Festival talks by Julian Glover

21. MAN OF IRON: THOMAS TELFORD & THE BUILDING OF BRITAIN

This will be an enthralling talk about the shepherd boy who changed the world with his revolutionary engineering and whose genius we still benefit from today. Julian Glover’s original portrait of the great Thomas Telford will cover decades of gloriously obsessive, prodigiously productive energy building churches, canals, bridges and the backbone of our national road network.
