    About this event

    Tickets not currently for sale. They will go live when the events are published by Open House London.

    Greenwich is the jewel in the crown when it comes to Pumping Stations. The site has a total of four Grade II listed heritage assets:

    • Pumping stations with its East and West Beam Engines
    • Two coal sheds
    • Network Rail viaduct

    The pumping station was built in 1864 by Sir Joseph Bazalgette chief engineer at the Metropolitan Board of Works. Greenwich Pumping station formed part of Bazalgette’s scheme to improve London’s sewers and prevent raw waste reaching the Thames.
