Photographer's Note

The Thames Barrier has been described as the eighth wonder of the world. It is certainly a very impressive work of engineering.

High water level at London Bridge has risen about two and a half feet per century, due to the melting of the polar ice caps and the activities of Man.

It is worth visiting when the barrier gates are being tested. See the Programme of Closures of all the Barrier Gates - details on the Official Thames Barrier website
