Date and time : Sunday 23rd March 2014 at mid-day.
Location: Brunel Road, left hand side of Rotherhithe Tunnel Approach, (Southwark, Thames Southside)

The two metre high forged steel letters have been crafted by Local Blacksmith, Kevin Boys and his apprentices at their forge in Surrey Docks Farm.
Individual 'hot carved' plates have also been designed & created, by pupils from the local, Bacons School.
Their plates have been incorporated into the letters sculpture as part of their schools, science and engineering programme.
The 'Letters Signage' will be the first phase of our vision to erect a 15mtr Statue commemorating -
Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the" Greatest British Engineer of all time" Just a stones throw away from the first tunnel ever to be built under a navigable river in the world ' The Thames Tunnel' and the Brunel Museum.
Please come along to witness the Brunel Gateway to Rotherhithe for yourself. Refreshment and entertainment will be provided.
