Crossness Pumping Station
Oct 11 @ 10:00 – 17:00
The Cathedral on the Marsh

The Cathedral on the Marsh

The Crossness Pumping Station was built by Sir Joseph Bazalgette in 1865 as part of Victorian London’s urgently needed main sewerage system. It celebrates 150 years of cleansing London’s sewerage this year. 

The Beam Engine House is a Grade 1 Listed Industrial Building constructed in the Romanesque style and features some of the most spectacular ornamental Victorian cast ironwork to be found today.

It also contains the four original pumping engines (although the cylinders were upgraded in 1901), which are possibly the largest remaining rotative beam engines in the world.

The Ride

We have rejigged this ride in order to avoid riding out and back along the same route. The outbound ride takes us through Mottingham, Eltham and Welling. We pass the ruins of Lesness Abbey and then through Thamesmead on some lovely cycle paths. We will stop for a coffee and a slice of cake somewhere – possibly Avery Hill Park.

This route will bring us out at the River Thames a very short way from the pumping station. At the pumping station there is a £6 entry fee. There is a cafe in the basement where we could buy tea, a sandwich and some more cake! You could bring your own picnic if you like, though sitting outside might be a bit pongy.

We will stay at Crossness for about 1½ hours, there is plenty to see.

We will then cycle back to Bromley South along the Thames Path

London to Brighton with the vintage cars
Nov 1 @ 08:00 – 18:00

 We will meet at Bromley South Station and cycle  to Croydon to meet the Vintage Cars as they drive through the area on the A23 and this is where we will team up with other cycling groups for the ride down to Madeira Drive, Brighton with these beautiful old cars. Please do not be late, this will be a long day and we do not wish to delay the start.

Last year the Scouts or a similar organisation had set up a bacon sarnie and tea stall (with toilets) about 20 miles into the ride, this is a regular feature so we will have a mid morning refuel stop here. There will be a stop for lunch either at Crawley or nearby. Please bring a picnic if you wish. At the Brighton end of the ride there is a route that we used last year which avoided Ditchling Beacon and I will use this route again.

This is a longish ride (c.60 miles) but the pace will be steady, there will also be opportunities for those who wish to cycle faster to team up with other quicker cyclists and then we can all regroup for a coffee or something a little strong on Brighton Pier. How much fun is that on a Sunday in November?

The return journey is by train, although some real hardcore cyclists just turn their bikes around and cycle straight back again, there are regular services back to East Croydon and Central London.

You will require lights for your bike, please also bring spare inner tubes to fit your tyre size, snacks and drinks
