Tower in the water

Technically this is on the Teddington side of the river and so it not actually in Ham but this is my blog so my rules apply and so it qualifies for inclusion.

The area around Teddington Lock is a bubble of bustle and motion surrounded by the stillness and calm of Ham Lands. It is easy to get caught up in the mood of the place and to pass through quickly without appreciating what is there.

A more leisurely walk across the footbridge gives you time to ponder the constructions within and around the river, such as this tower. The angles of wood are attractive enough but, even better, the tower is literally topped-of with metal crowns to protect the wood that are just a little bit more decorative than they need to be.
