Crossness Steaming Open Day

Header image for Title

This event has finished Took place on: Sunday, 10th Dec 2023

 £18

Visit the 3 listed buildings and see the four Victorian beam engines, one of which will be working.

The Victorian steam engines were installed at Crossness as part of Joseph Bazalgette's massive London sewer network as the endpoint for the southern outflow, and was constructed with four massive steam engines to pump the sewage up from the sewer into the Thames.

The four steam engines were left in place when the Victorian pumps were replaced with modern machines, and in recent years, one of the four was restored back to working order.

Also see "The Great Stink" exhibition and learn about the Victorian sewer system which continues to serve the capital.
