Recent research has analyzed the fundamental improvements that were made to Lancashire’s road network during the industrial revolution period, not only through greatly extending road mileage, but also through easing gradients and laying paved surfaces. This article examines the contribution that local businessmen made to these improvements, from providing finance for road construction to involving themselves in the formation and running of turnpike trusts.
