Long Reach education centre

Long Reach is a large sewage treatment works near the Dartford Crossing. It serves close to 900,000 residents and businesses, and generates enough renewable energy from sewage to power the equivalent of 6000 homes.

Long Reach has a wealth of biodiversity and is home to many rare bee species, including the UK’s rarest bumblebee. The shrill carder.

We have a dedicated classroom building on site where we can work on a range of interactive STEM focussed learning opportunities, in addition to the site tour.
