The Box tunnel, designed by I K Brunel to carry the Great Western Railway under Box Hill, was opened in 1841. The architecture of the GWR was varied to match local styles, so that the portal of Box Tunnel reflects the Classical influences of nearby Bath. Selected parts of the GWR are being considered for nomination as a World Heritage Site.
