Summary[edit]

Description
English: Outfall of the Severn Tunnel Great Spring, Sudbrook On 16th October 1879 engineers driving the Severn Tunnel struck a water-filled passage 170 feet underground and 400 yards inland. The tunnel was flooded within 2 days and took 2 years to finally drain. Ever since the tunnel has been kept dry by pumping more than 23 million gallons of fresh water a day to the surface. This exceptionally pure water is used by a paper mill and brewery; what is left emerges at this outfall.
