Turn right, then left down the access road back to Selwyn Hall. Box is a large straggling village that sits astride the busy A4 in hilly country halfway between Bath and Chippenham.
Although stone has been quarried here since the 9th century, Box really found fame during the 18th-century when the local stone was used for Bath's magnificent buildings.
The construction of Box Tunnel also uncovered immense deposits of good stone and by Box stone quarries were among the most productive in the world, employing over men.
Little trace can be seen above ground today, except for some fine stone-built houses in the village and a few reminders of the industry on Box Hill. His task was to build a railway covering the miles km from London to Bristol.
The problems and projects he encountered on the way would help to make him the most famous engineer of the Victorian age.
After a relatively straightforward and level start through the Home Counties, which earned the nickname 'Brunel's Billiard Table', he came to the hilly Cotswolds. Incidentally, the Provost of Eton thought the line would be injurious to the discipline of the school and the morals of the pupils.
The solution at Box would be a tunnel, and at nearly 2 miles 3. It would also be very wide. Already controversial, Brunel ignored the gauge of other companies, preferring the 7ft 2.
He also made the tunnel dead straight, and, never one to 'hide his light', the alignment was calculated so the dawn sun would shine through on his birthday on 9th April.
Unfortunately he did not allow for atmospheric refraction and was two days out! All was on a grand scale: Although artificial, like many large dark holes, the tunnel has collected its fair share of mystery with tales of noises, people under the hill and trains entering the tunnel, never to re-emerge.
But as is often the case, the explanations are rather more mundane. To test excavation conditions, Brunel dug a small trial section alongside what is now the eastern entrance and the military commandeered this section during World War Two as a safe and fairly secret store for ammunition, records and top brass.Likes, 5 Comments - Skylife Magazine (@skylifemagazine) on Instagram: “How many times in life have you passed through a tunnel of flowers?
