Storm damage

The recent storm caused some damage but probably not as much as some feared. Along the section of the towpath between Teddington Lock and Ham House a few trees were uprooted and fell across the path. These were all growing on the river side of the path and so had less firm foundations than the other trees.

Walkers quickly made new routes around the fallen trees though passage must have been a lot harder for cyclists. The trees were cleared in a few days and everything was soon back to normal.

  1. I have memories of walking to school the morning after the 1987 hurricane and seeing several of the big trees surrounding Ham Common Pond had come down...... I'm wondering if there's any photographic evidence of the damage done to the area then.....
