Hullo everyone,

Sorry for the last minute notification.

If you'd like to see one of the finest Victorian industrial buildings in the World you can do so today between 10.30 and 16.00. It's a secular Cathedral and contains the finest decorative ironwork in Southern England. It also has some of the largest steam engines ever built and on of them will be working.

The Crossness Engines Trust
The Old Works
Thames Water S.T.W.
Belvedere Road
Abbey Wood London
Tel: 0208 311 3711

A mini-bus will be operating from Abbey Wood railway station from about 10.15. I suggest you visit after 14.00 to avoid crowds. Admission is 5 and you won't regret a penny of it.

All the best

Ian Bull

Hullo Sydenhamcentral,

I'm pleased you enjoyed your visit. I never feel guilty about promoting Crossness because I know that *everyone* who visits will come away a happier person.

If anyone is tempted, the next open day is on Sunday September 23rd, 'London Open House Day'. Admission will be free but it can be very, very busy. It might be better to delay visits until the last open day of the year on Sunday October 21st.

All the best

Ian Bull
