Isambard Kingdom Brunel

If you live in the 'Thames Valley' as it's known here, you can't go very far before you come across the work of a very famous Englishman with a very strange name, yes Isambard Kingdom Brunel!

Posting my Blog about Goring and Moulsford earlier I drifted onto the Wikipedia site on Brunel and reminded myself what an amazing guy he was - in his relatively short life (he died when he was only 53!) he created things which last to this day railways, bridges, tunnels and ships.

So if you want to marvel at what he did and left behind, just go to the Wikipedia site - it actually made me very proud to be an Englishman!
