PAGE NOT YET IN USE – PART OF DEVELOPMENT OF NEW ONLINE SHOP

This great underwater crossing’s continued use today is testimony to the far-sighted technical skill of Marc and Isambard Brunel. What we shouldn’t forget is the grip that the Thames Tunnel had on the popular imagination at the time; a combination of joy, pleasure, wonder and sheer excitement, which is not dead and which echoes up from the river-bed to this day.

- MICHAEL PALIN in his foreword

 

Written by acknowledged experts and published by the Brunel Museum in association with the Institute of Civil Engineers, this  book presents the fascinating story of the first successful tunnel under a river in soft ground. It is illustrated with 55 contemporary paintings, plans, photographs and engravings, which bring the project to life.
