The Engine House is located a few yards from the River Lea towpath between Stonebridge Lock and Springfield Marina. It can also be accessed across Markfield Park via Crowland Road from the A10, or via Markfield Road as below.


Markfield Road is a turning immediately off Broad Lane which links between the A10 (a major road running from the City of London north, to Hertford and Cambridge), and the A503 (which runs east through Walthamstow).
The A10 can be accessed directly at Junction 25 of the M25 and the route to follow to Tottenham is the A10 to Central London.
