    The original Abbey Mills Pumping Station, in Abbey Lane, London E15, is a sewerage pumping station, designed by engineer Joseph Bazalgette, Edmund Cooper, and architect Charles Driver. It was built between 1865 and 1868. It was designed in a cruciform plan, with an elaborate Byzantine style, described as The Cathedral of Sewage. It has a twin, Crossness Pumping Station, south of the River Thames at Crossness, at the end of the Southern Outfall Sewer.

    The land may become the major access to the new thames tunnel

    Not sure what the current state of this site is,last i heard there was a big razor wire fence put up.

    Crossness on the other side of the river is under restoration and they have engines in steam on these dates 2012
