Brunel's Engine House

Categories: Engineering

The engine house was designed by Marc Brunel to be part of the infrastructure of his Thames tunnel. It held steam-powered pumps used to extract water from the excavations. Since 1961 the building has been used as a museum displaying information on the construction of the tunnel and other projects by the Brunels.
