Discover this beautiful example of Victorian architecture and engineering on the first Crossness Open Day of 2018. Explore our fantastic exhibition on the history of London’s toilets and sewer system, our small steam engines, and family activities.

Join us for a craft workshop where we will show you how to create one of the scariest masks from history. Find out who wore them and why. Then take your mask home to scare your friends and family! The activity is suitable for children aged 4 years + and children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
