    Iron Bridge Gorge Museum
    The Iron Bridge Gorge museum has loaned the original Thames Tunnel Banquet painting for display in the Engine House and a blue plaque has now been attached to the shaft detailing the importance of the site. If you would like to join the museum download the membership form. A longer description of the picture can be found here and you can buy a copy through the online shop.

    World Class Historical Importance
    The Thames Tunnel passes directly underneath the engine house. Never heard of it? It was the first tunnel to be dug under a navigable river through soft earth using a tunnel shield. It was the first and it is still in use carrying the East London Line below the River Thames, part of the London Underground network. The museum exhibits this world class history built in the face of financial, flood and fire catastrophes.
