Engineering Change

The Tour

London is an international city in a continual state of growth and development. Consequently mechanical, electrical and civil engineering ventures have helped this development. They have also changed its appearance and layout.

Some of these ventures are familiar to us. They gave us the tunnels beneath our streets and the bridges spanning our river.

Others are less familiar. Down a small alleyway was once to be found the hub of British telecommunications.

Though largely gone, there are still some remains of a plan to keep Londoners permanently off of the streets.

Come and explore some of the moments when engineering came to the aid of the City of London, to help it grow and to shape its future.
