Teddington Weir

A pleasant morning today at Teddington Lock sketching the weir from the suspension bridge.  Teddington Lock is the point where The Thames ceases to be tidal.  Anything downstream being within The Port of London Authority.  Nearby is Tough's Boatyard.  One of the few remaining working boatyards on the tidal Thames and from where Operation Dynamo - the small ship flotilla to Dunkirk - was co-ordinated.  Opposite the weir were the studios of Thames Television, home of many iconic broadcasts.
