This photo shows the view east along Box Tunnel and shows the inner lining.
Someone added "an Interesting anecdote with regard to this Tunnel, built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, which might be interesting to viewers of the picture: April 9th is Brunel's birthday, and if you stand at the western end and look through the tunnel at dawn you can actually see the sun rise through the eastern end. It was engineered perfectly straight". There seems to be a difference of opinion on this as it is also said that it shines through on the 7th.
