Arthur Brome Wilson (1866–1944) was a civil engineer with a special interest in canals.

His major project in the UK involved extensive repairs to the Thames and Severn Canal in Gloucestershire in 1901–1905. Wilson pioneered the use of concrete for lining the canal summit, particularly for construction of the Sapperton Tunnel where geological challenges led to extensive leakages.
