Brunel Engine House - Subaqueous TunnelThis historic landmark was the first ever tunnel to be burrowed under a navigable river. Digging began in 1825 under Marc Brunel. He invented and implemented the basic technological principles of tunnelling. These have been used in tunnel construction ever since. Plagued by periodic flooding, blazing infernos and labour fatalities the tunnel took eight years to construct and was nicknamed 'The Great Bore' by the press. Queen Victoria opened it in 1843 to tourists but it instead became a haunt for whores and miscreants. Today it still carries the East London Line below the Thames and remains the most watertight of all the rail tunnels.
