PLEASE NOTE - VISITS TO CROSSNESS DURING 2015
The Trust is currently embarking on a major programme of work that will see the creation of a new access path; repair to the fabric of the core buildings and the creation of new visitor and exhibition facilities.
Whilst we are keen to maintain access to the site during this period, the extensive building work presents a real challenge which will mean that the site may be closed to the public for significant periods of time until this work is completed.
However, despite the ongoing building works, the Trust has decided that there will be several public steaming days during 2015. We hope that further events will also take place during 2015, details of which will be added to this page when known. The dates currently agreed are as follows:
Sunday April 19th - Local History **
Sunday June 21st - Model Engineering and amateur radio station GB150CM celebrating the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Crossness Pumping Station **
Sunday July 26th - Transport
Sunday August 23rd - Local Interest
Sunday October 11th - Local History **
Please note that we will not be open to the public for Open House London
** Please note that a Minibus service will be operational between Abbey Wood BR station and our site on these dates only. The first bus will depart from Abbey Wood BR station at 10.15am and thereafter at approximately 30 minute intervals. The last bus from our site to Abbey Wood BR station will depart at 5.00pm.
