Thames Barriers -- keeping water out; and in at Richmond Lock and Weir
The Thames Barrier is an awesome structure built to avoid floods in London from extreme high tides. Click the link http://sussexrambler.blogspot.com/2009/02/eastenders.html for more pictures from Canary Wharf to the barrier.
Way upstream past central London at Richmond is a different barrier, built to keep water in the river; seen above from upstream. These photo's taken yesterday.
