AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR OF THE CROSSNESS ENGINES TRUST.
All of the funding needed to conserve the buildings and engines of Joseph Bazalgette’s “cathedral on the marsh” comes from visitors to the site, needless to say we have zero visitors & zero funding at present, during this difficult lock down period.
Please would you donate what you can afford,
to enable the volunteers to give this unique,
world famous site the maintenance & care it
Built by Sir Joseph Bazalgette for London's sewage system and opened in 1865, Crossness Pumping Station is a Grade 1 Listed building and features some of the most spectacular ornamental Victorian cast ironwork found in the world today.
