Isambard Kingdom Brunel was one of the most renowned British engineers, and his name is intrinsically linked to Victorian ingenuity. The Talk includes details of his background and family. He built bridges, viaducts, tunnels and railways, and revoultionised steamship design. His legacy remains on show throughout the country, though you may not be aware of all of the examples of his numerous local achievements which are covered in this talk.   One of his first projects was the construction of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, though work was suspended for several years,  and the bridge was not completed until after his death. His inventiveness has inspired many who have since followed an engineering career. Updated 27 May 2019
