The Thames Tunnel Company had been formed in 1824 and work had commenced in the following year. The work was interrupted in January 1828 when the tunnel under construction flooded and funds had run out. Work was not to recommence until 1835 (with completion of the project in 1843) but 1828 saw a flurry of reports and activities and a renewed effort to accumulate the necessary funds to proceed.
