Great British Engineers – George Stephenson

These are a series of pass-notes on inspirational Great British Engineers. At the beginning of each month a new profile will be published. Some are famous names – others forgotten in history; some studied engineering, some studied other subjects before finding engineering; and some had no formal education at all – but all left their impression in the field of mechanical engineering.
