The Crossness Pumping Station

A Cathedral on the Marsh



The Crossness Engines Trust is working on the completion of landscaping work and the installation of an exhibition which explains the importance of the site with the objective of opening the whole site, including the buildings much more frequently to visitors.

On Tuesdays and Fridays (from 09:30 to 16:00) and on the second Sunday in every month (from 10:00 to 14:00) you are welcome to visit the site and look around.  Access is via the gate which connects with the Thames path in the north-west corner of the site.  You will normally not be able to enter the buildings on these days.

 Our last planned open day for 2015 is 11 October 2015. **

 We will publish our plans for opening in 2016 in the near future.
