Does anyone know the official names for the two tunnels on the GWML near Bath at Twerton, please?

"Quail" lists them as Twerton Long Tunnel and Twerton Short Tunnel. However, "Historic England" refers to them as Twerton Wood Tunnel and Twerton Tunnel respectively.

The Sectional Appendix would probably have the definitive answer. However, Quail is more likely to be correct than Historic England.

West is best
Internally infrastructure staff call them Twerton Long Tunnel and Twerton Short Tunnel. Both the sectional appendix and signalling plans also use these names.

Large-scale OS mapping of the area doesn't give either tunnel a name, but the longer tunnel runs under Twerton Wood. I suspect that's how Historic England has given them the names they use.
