Grand Junction Canal from Stow Hill near Upper Heyford, Northamptonshire, 1819. Artist: John Hassell

Grand Junction Canal from Stow Hill near Upper Heyford, Northamptonshire, 1819. A lime kiln can be seen in the centre of the picture. Lime became important to agriculture, building (urban expansion at this time) and the growing chemical industry. The Grand Junction Canal was part of the network linking London with the Midlands manufacturing towns, and with Liverpool. The canal was built between 1793 and 1805, with William Jessop as its chief engineer, and James Barnes as resident engineer responsible for most of the day to day construction. It was originally planned to build the canal from Braunston to the Thames at Brentford, but in 1794 it was decided to build a branch to Paddington, which was much closer to central London. From Tour of the Grand Junction by J Hassell, 1819

The Spanish Armada which threatened England in July 1588

The Spanish Armada which threatened England in July 1588. The ships of the Spanish fleet are shown in combat with British vessels. The Armada, a fleet of 130 ships under the command of the Duke of Medina Sidonia was intended to protect an invasion force commanded by the Duke of Parma as it crossed the English Channel. Harrassment from the smaller, more manoeuvrable vessels of the British Navy, the use of fireships and unfavourable weather conditions meant that the Armada could not achieve its objective of guaranteeing Parma's barges safe passage across the Channel. Ultimately the Armada was swept up the North Sea and much of it was destroyed in storms around the coasts of Scotland and Ireland. Painting in the collection of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, England
