The Crossness Pumping Station

A Cathedral on the Marsh



The Trust is now 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 2014. The dates currently agreed are as follows:

Sunday April 6th  -  Local History Fair (in association with Bexley Civic Society)

Sunday June 22nd  -  Model Engineering & International Museums Weekend amateur radio station GB2CM

Sunday July 27th  -  Transport

Sunday August 31st  -  Local History **

Sunday October 12th  -  Local History  

Please note that we will not be open to the public for Open House London

Admission will be from 10.30am until 4.00pm. Entry charges - Adults £6.00 : Young persons (5 to 16 years of age) £2.00 : Children under  5 : FREE

No booking is required.

We will be operating a mini-bus service between Abbey Wood BR station and the Crossness site for all the public steaming days shown above except Sunday 27th July. The first bus from Abbey Wood station will leave at approx.10.15 am and will run at approx. 30 minute intervals thereafter. The last bus will leave the Crossness site between 4.30pm and 5.00pm.

** Please noteThere will be no trains running through Abbey Wood station on Steaming Day-Sunday 31st August. A replacement bus service will run between Plumstead BR station and Dartford BR station,  calling at Abbey Wood en route. Our minibus will pick up at Bexleyheath BR station at 10.00am (booking office side) then Abbey Wood BR station at 10.15am and thereafter at intervals throughout the day. The minibuus will drop off it Abbey Wood BR station then Bexleyheath BR station on return journeys. The last minibus from Crossness will leave our site at 5.00pm

 It is recommended that visitors wear flat shoes and trousers. Please note that the Trust can only accept payment in cash or by cheque.
