High tide at Teddington Weir

I was walking back home from work and had just got on to Teddington Footbridge when I noticed that the tide was particularly high. The island in the centre is always a good marker of the river level as a beach is exposed at low tide.

To judge the height of the tide better I zoomed in on the weir to see how much of a drop there was between the two levels and there was not much of a drop at all. it looked to be little more than an inch. I was probably not there when the tide was at its highest either.

Looking across to the main sluices and the near parity between the two levels was even more obvious.
