Briar Rose Hotel


Celebrated as a pioneering canal builder, James Brindley (1716-1772) is the subject of some colourful folklore. In a bid to sift myth from history, Victoria Owens – author of James Brindley and the Duke of Bridgewater – Canal Visionaries (Amberley Publishing, 2015) – examines early life as a millwright; his brief if adventurous exploration of steam power and the fame which followed his canal work for Francis Egerton, 3rd Duke of Bridgewater.
