There Is No Away

Documentary Radio Program

2018

In October 2018 Petra Cox, an outreach officer at Crosness Engines took me on a journey through the history of London sewers and the history of Crosness Pumping Station - the oldest Outfall Station in Britain. Along the way I discovered that it was not only this place had a fascinating past, but also an ingenious and inspiering present. Petra introduced me to many voilunteers, who talked about their projects within the station - laying train trucks, refurbishing engines, conservating original walls, just to name a few. I learned that it was a sheer passsion of many individuals over the past 3 decades that saved this place from ruin.
