Event organised by ICE

04 February 2021

This event has now ended


The life and works of Isambard Kingdom Brunel are famous but his father, Marc Isambard Brunel, is not so well-known and deserves to be recognised as a brilliant engineer in his own right.

Join ICE Hereford and Worcester for a historical talk, focusing on the life and works of Sir Marc Isambard Brunel, the father of Isambard Kingdom.

Sir Marc, born in France, was responsible for a wide range of engineering projects, including his development of machinery for the manufacture of ships' pulley blocks and the driving of the first tunnel under the River Thames.
