Thomas Telford, Robert Stephenson and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, giants of civil engineering in the nineteenth century were, between them, responsible for a remarkable number of inventions and innovations in the uses of new materials and structural systems shown by their great works such as the Menai Suspension Bridge, the Pont Cysylltau Aqueduct. The Britannia Tubular Bridge, the Great Western Railway and the Royal Albert Bridge joining Devon and Cornwall by railway. Their use of small scale precursors, the Longdon Aqueduct, the Conway Tubular Bridge and the Chepstow Railway Bridge, provided much valuable information for the building of their great masterpieces. The opportunity of using the experience gained in this way has an important message for us today.
