    I visited the Abbey Mills Pumping station after I was kindly given a ticket to visit this place.

    It was one of Joseph Bazalgette’s sewage pumping stations built after the Great Stink of London in the Victorian age in an epic Byzantium design. Built in East London to deal with North London’s waste, it has a twin pumping station south of the River Thames at Crossness. A Grade 2* listed building, it still operates after 150 years after it was constructed. An impressive building to visit inside and outside, some of it was used in Batman Begins and for a music video for a-ha!
