On the Great Western Railway at the Welsh end of the Severn Tunnel there used to be a huge marshalling yard called Severn Tunnel Junction. Many of the locals worked there but unfortunately the yard was closed down and a motorway built through it.
The Widders wrote this dance in memory of the people who worked there and a tribute to Mr Brunel.
