Teddington Lock Footbridge

Not only does Teddington Lock Footbridge provide the only pedestrian access to Ham from the West but it is also a very charming structure in its own right.

The bridge has two spans and this is the one that connects Teddington to the small island. Here we are looking towards Teddington with glimpses of The Anglers to the left of the bridge and of the slipway and boathouse to the right.

Looking back the other way from Teddington towards the island we can see that it is not as far above the river as the other span as only small boats, such as those shown, need access to the moorings just below the weir.
