The boiler house was built to provide steam for the pumping engines needed to keep the Thames Tunnel dry during its construction. The foot tunnel was started in 1825 and finished in 1842 by Marc Brunel and his son Isambard; in 1869 it was converted into a tunnel for the underground - see TQ3579 : Rotherhithe Overground Station entrance, Brunel Road, SE16.
