“The Thames Tunnel, which dives under London’s central waterway, is a scheduled monument and international landmark, being the oldest tunnel in the oldest underground system in the world It opened to the public on this day in 1843”

Given that Chris Grayling’s plan for a Stonehenge tunnel is teetering on the edge of oblivion (thanks to Brexit, UNESCO, finances, worldwide criticism and his less than perfect organisational skills) it’s possible that Historic England has been rather tone deaf yet again in highlighting Brunel’s marvellous tunnel at this time. Unkind persons will surely make invidious comparisons!
