North-east England, defined here as the historic counties of Northumberland and Durham, has a long, proud tradition of producing great innovators, some very well-known and others almost forgotten.


This book explores their stories and legacies, examining such titanic figures as the Stephensons, Swan and Hunter. The partnership of Richard Grainger and John Dobson, who together transformed Newcastle from a cramped medieval port to a beautiful Victorian city, also feature.


Lavishly illustrated throughout, this is a terrific celebration of the industrial and civic achievements of north-east England.
