Brunel’s hidden Kingdom
A unique account of Isamband Kingdom Brunel creating his estate and planning his family mansion at Watcombe,Torquay. Here he spent his happiest days with his family and became deeply involved in the local community.
“Brunel’s Hidden Kingdom contains over 130 images,many of which have never been published before.A must have for all Brunel enthusiasts.
“This is an excellent and badly-needed piece of research.The narrative illuminates the character of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the nature of his career, catching a genuine sense of excitement over the Watcombe Project.
This book is thus most welcome, bringing together the fruit of Geoff Tudor’s research over many years and presenting it in a form that is colourful and attractive.
It will serve as an excellent Guide to the Brunel Garden, but it is of course more than that, as it is a unique contribution to Brunel studies.
An outstanding piece of scholarship that also should have wide popular appeal Professor Angus Buchanan, Emeritus Professor in the History of Technology, University of Bath.
