East London's Crossness Sludge Incinerator - a beautiful way to do a dirty job!

Came across this magnificant piece of architecture yesterday - a sludge incinerator based at the Crossness sewage works in Bexley, East London.

With a job like that, you'd expect it to look like some rectangular monument to brutalism, instead it's an impressive metallic marvel.














Some more information about the Crossness sludge incinerator...

"Sludge Incinerator"... Love it!

I've never seen this gem before, probably because Crossness is a desolate headland in the Thames Estuary which you have to pass through Thamesmead to get to!

Cool building though
