The weir at Teddington

Where Ham meetings Teddington the river has been tamed to allow safe passage for boats along the river and for pedestrians across it. The first signs of this as you walk along the towpath north from Kingston are the sights and sounds of the weir and the constructions around it.

The industrial brutality of the weir is echoed by the boats moored on the Surrey bank. In the middle the calmed water reflects what it sees without prejudice.
