Panel 5 - MIDDLE CREEK Greenwich Pumping Station & Greenwich Railway

To the east side of Ha’Penny Hatch footbridge, on the C10 combined foot and cycle path, is the CreekLink trail’s proposed ‘super-site’. The content and location of this information point is critical to the interpretation of the heritage of the Creekside area. The location is on the only part of the public realm that closely adjoins the Greenwich Pumping Station site, GREPS, owned and operated by Thames Water. It provides a unique opportunity to interpret four nearby Grade II listed Victorian structures. In particular, it is the only place where the public, from outside the GREPS security fence, can closely engage with the three listed two decorative cast iron Coal Sheds.

The trail would also highlight the current Thames Tideway Tunnel (TTT) project to build the 21st-century Greenwich Connector overflow tunnel, as part of their London-wide “Super Sewer” modernisation of the original Bazalgette system. The location is a fourth listed Victorian structure requiring interpretation, the railway bridge that completed the pioneering London Bridge to Greenwich line in 1838. Discussions with Thames Water and TTT about how we can collaborate on the interpretation of the heritage assets of this important site are on-going.

The ambition is to show the locations of the information boards on Google Maps to help navigate to them and to help share digital information, old photos and interesting stories. See our demonstration here
