Thames Tunnel Tour

Wapping Tunnel Tour Repeated

And speaking of Brunel's Tunnel, as part of the
London Open House series next weekend (17th and 18th September) the brilliant Robert Hulse from the Brunel Engine House Museum will be repeating the innuendo filled Thames Tunnel Tour every hour on the hour from 11am to 4pm, from Rotherhithe London Underground Station.

Robert in action from June's tourHe said: "Hello Annie

Open House Shafting 17/18 September!

For readers who missed the summer shafting in June, we are doing an autumn one! Visit Open House website for details. Entry to the Museum is free, but shafters are invited to make donations to help run the Brunel charity's community events.

In the interest of keeping up a good innuendo, I should point out that visitors now have the chance to see the Iron Duke. Its pistons were hammered in the local forge and the local vicar named the locomotive. For the historians, this is Nick the Vic who blessed the shaft at the Fancy Fair... in 2002

Robert rocks!! The tour which a group of us went to in June is well worth every penny!
