The Coin and The History: Isambard Kingdom Brunel

Isambard Kingdom Brunel

Isambard Kingdom Brunel was born on 9th April 1806 in Portsmouth. He lived during the Industrial Revolution and died of a stroke on 15th September 1859.

His father, Mark, was a French engineer who fled France during the revolution. On his return to England, Brunel began working for his father as an engineer.

Brunel designed bridges, tunnels, railways and several famous ships. Some of Brunel's works included:

Wharncliffe Viaduct - an eight-arched brick built railway viaduct running between Hanwell and Ealing.

Maidenhead Railway Bridge - at the time of building in 1838, this was the worlds widest and flattest brick arch bridge.

Bristol Temple Meads Station - at the time of opening, this station was the largest single-span building ever built.

Box Tunnel - at the time of construction, this 2,937m tunnel on the Great Western Railway line between Bath and Chippenham was the world’s longest railway tunnel

Thames Tunnel - this tunnel was built between 1825 and 1843. It runs under the Thames and was the first tunnel to be built under any river. Originally it was used by pedestrians before being converted to a railway tunnel in 1869.

SS Great Western - launched in 1837, this was the first steamship to engage in transatlantic service.

SS Great Britain - this steamship was the first iron hulled transatlantic liner, and was launched from Bristol in 1843. She was abandoned in the Falkland Islands but was rescued in 1970 and taken to dry dock in Bristol where she was restored and currently remains as a tourist attraction.

Paddington Station - Although it has undergone changes, much of this structure has survived. Isambard Kingdom Brunel Paddington Station £2 coin
