An event to commemorate the birth of John Smeaton

The design and construction of the Ripon Canal were overseen by renowned canal engineer John Smeaton (8 June 1724 – 28 October 1792). He was a pioneering figure in canal engineering and is most famously known for his work on the Eddystone Lighthouse. His involvement in the Ripon Canal project ensured that it was designed and built to the highest engineering standards of the time.
