Brunel Museum

Richard Buchanan writes.......

I went to the Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe today, and was told that on the Open House Days they will be opening the shaft from which the Thames Tunnel was built. It now has a concrete floor above the running tracks of the railway, and a concrete roof supporting a garden, but the inside is as last used. A temporary stairway will be put in for the occasion.

Future plans depend on successful grant application; they envisage a gallery on the concrete floor and another at ground level in a superstructure similar to what Brunel had.
