The Pumphouse was built in 1929 to regulate the water level in the Dock System. When the Surrey Docks closed in 1970, 350 acres became derelict and 270 years of tradition came to an end. The building was refurbished in 1989 and the Heritage Museum opened in 1991.

It houses the Rotherhithe Heritage Museum and a variety of historical exhibitions and in addition offers further educational opportunities in the environmental study centre using the Lavender Pond and Nature Park.
