PHEW (Panel for Historical Engineering Works)

PHEW is the ICE panel that identifies historical engineering works (including tunnels) that are worthy of recording, promoting and, in some cases, preserving for posterity.

The panel is assisted in its work by volunteers in the regions who monitor sites and structures by making occasional visits, taking photographs etc. The panel maintains a searchable database of the identified works and publishes a quarterly newsletter, regional guides and leaflets on the subject. It is also active in arranging for some structures to be commemorated with blue plaques.

Paul Perry (BTS Committee Member) is responsible for BTS liaison with PHEW and works with Peter Harris, the panel member for tunnels.
