Book Richard Trevithick - giant of steam: Author Anthony Burton, whose biography of Thomas Telford was published last year, tells the story of Cornish engineer Trevithick, who built his first steam engine in 1801. This mechanised the Cornish mining industry, and produced powered canal boats and dredgers. In 1816 Trevithick took his steam engines to the silver mines of Peru but fortune eluded him and he returned penniless.
