The book was a real eye opener for me. It amazes me how hard and fast they worked. During conflicts abroad the services used them to build access and said what the navvies did in 5 days would have taken the army a month to by:   This is the definitive story of the men who built the railways – the unknown Victorian labourers who blasted, tunnelled, drank and brawled their way across nineteenth-century England.

Preached at and plundered, sworn at and swindled, this anarchic elite endured perils and disasters, and carved out of the English countryside an industrial-age architecture. Many of the navvies employed to build the railways in England during the early part of the 19th century lived in squalid temporary accommodations referred to as "shanty towns." Due in part to constructing through rural areas, and, in part, the navvies negative reputation, two-thirds of the railway construction sites had housing erected specifically for the navvy.

The book describes the work they did mainly on the canals and railways. It also has insights into how the Navvies were organised and paid. Tributes are paid to their bravery, effort and fortitude working in very difficult circumstances, many suffering death and appalling injuries on the way.4/5.
