Harvill Secker

Beautifully illustrated by Vanessa Baird, this tender and deeply personal book is the first of four volumes marvelling at the vast, unknowable universe around us.


The Tunnel Through Time


Available in Paperback

Published 7th September 2017


Crossrail, the `Elizabeth’ line, is simply the latest way of traversing a very old east-west route through what was once countryside to the city and out again. Visiting Stepney, Liverpool Street, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street, Gillian Tindall traces the course of many of these historical journeys across time as well as space. The Tunnel Through Time uncovers the lives of those who walked where many of our streets still run.
