Boats resting by the weir

Walking across the footbridge at Teddington presents you with this view of contrasts. In the foreground we have still boats moored quietly near to the Teddington shore and in the background the Thames argues violently with the weir that breaks its journey to the sea.

The weir also battles the tide as it tries to force its way upstream. Most of the time the weir wins and the tide is tamed but just occasionally the tide manages to creep over the top of the weir and make its way towards Kingston.
