Featured Book

The long-awaited autobiography of Sir Harold Harding - 'It's Warmer Down Below'. Founding Chairman of the British Tunnelling Society, which will celebrate 50 years in March 2021.

Sir Harold was a civil engineer and pioneer of soil mechanics, remembered for his extensive work on tunnel engineering. He was involved in significant projects including much of the London Underground and the feasibility study that underpinned the Channel Tunnel. He also sat on the Aberfan Tribunal and advised on many tunnels around the world.

This book is enriched by the sense of history and well-developed wit that was key to the author's approach to his work.
