12th May 2023.
2pm – 3pm.
In this talk, Bruce Keith will present his book “Bridgescapes” in The Devil’s Porridge Museum.
Bruce Keith’s first book, “Bridgescapes” explores Scotland’s bridges across seven centuries of history, from the 14th century’s Brig o’ Balgownie and the Auld Brig at Dumfries, to the largest three tower cable-stayed bridge in the world, the iconic Queensferry Crossing, which opened in 2017.
Along the way Bruce finds inspiration in the suspension bridges, arched viaducts and aqueducts which carry our roads, railways and canals and have witnessed key moments from our nation’s history. Amongst the characters we encounter are Thomas Telford, John Rennie, John Smeaton, Louis Harper and Sir William Arrol, whose engineering feats both at home and abroad have left a proud heritage of engineering prowess.
