Open to rail traffic in 1902 Chipping Sodbury Tunnel has suffered varying degrees of flooding over the last 100 years. Constructed through a major Cotswold aquifer the tunnel cuts through major water conduits and springs that react in varying degrees to rainfall, with as much as 2.5 cumecs of water inflow being recorded at one known ‘Spring’ point in the tunnel.
