This book follows the history of how the Mersey Tunnels came about, details of their construction and, unlike any tunnel projects before, how the first tunnel (Queensway) was excavated by hand, as no tunnel of comparable diameter had been built before. Nothing existed to match its length or its complexity, so it was known at the time as the 8th Wonder of the World. The Queensway has provided shelter in times of war and both tunnels are an integral part of the success of the region, and will remain so for many years to come.


Peter is married and was born in Wirral. He joined the Royal Marines at 18 and saw service in the Falkland Conflict, followed by Northern Ireland. After leaving the Royal Marines, he gained his construction qualifications, which have seen him progress in the construction industry in both public and private sectors. He is now changing his career by putting some of that experience into print.
