We’ve been talking about the new series of video game TV shows GamesMaster for some time, from the first rumors to the confirmation that Scottish comedian Robert Love Florence will be the main presenter. Now it’s clear that the show’s competition segment will be filmed at the Crossness Pumping Station in London, thanks to a tweet by one of Florence’s co-presenters Frankie Ward.

The pumping station was built by William Webster between 1859 and 1865 with the aim of upgrading London’s oversized sewer system. Architectural historian Nikolaus Pebsner described it as the “Victorian Ironworking Cathedral”.You may recognize the location from the 2009 movie Sherlock Holmes..

Previous Games Master series were filmed at Sunbury Pumphouse, St Paul’s Church (Dock Street, London), Oxford Prison, and Clerkenwell House of Detention.
