Dealer Notes
Benjamin Outram, one of the most remarkable civil engineers of the early Industrial Revolution. Born in Alfreton in Derbyshire, he seized the opportunity presented by the building of the Cromford Canal. Initially he worked for William Jessop but soon became a leading engineer in his own right.
He went on to act for the Derby, Nottingham and Nutbrook canals in the East Midlands, the Ashton and Peak Forest canals in the North West, the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, a major trans-pennine route, and the Brecknock & Abergavenny Canal in South Wales.
