to the Brunel 200 Legacy website. Throughout 2006, Brunel 200 led the
celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Isambard
Kingdom Brunel, one of the most versatile, audacious and inspirational
engineers of the nineteenth century.
Brunel 200 provided an exciting and
wide-ranging programme of exhibitions, learning programmes, publications,
walks and trails, arts projects, competitions, debates, media programmes
and talks that commemorated Brunel’s life, times and legacy and
inspired the Brunels of the future.
Brunel 200 officially ended in September
2006, although some projects continued to the end of the year including
the exhibitions The End of the Line at the Royal Cornwall Museum and
The Forces That Made Brunel at Explore-At-Bristol, the erection of the
Dawlish to the Warren Coastal Footpath History Boards and the erection
of new interpretation boards at the Holburne Museum, Bath.
Although the news, events and resources

200 Legacy website provides extensive details of all the arts projects,
exhibitions and other events and activities that have taken place in
2006. In addition to written descriptions, the site includes photographs
