Crossness Pumping Station, Belvedere Road SE28 - Bexley

Opened 4 April 1865; the engineer was Joseph Bazalgette. The building retains important cast iron interior fittings and four colossal beam engines by James Watt and Co. The Crossness Engines Trust opens the building regularly and has a programme of restoration work. Repairs to embedded rainwater pipes are still needed.
