Every November the weirs are lifted between Richmond and Teddington Lock for the Thames Annual Draw Off.  This allows the Port of London Authority to drain the water to its natural level at low tide so that essential maintenance work can be carried out on the lock, weir and sluices.

I’ve been walking the river between Eel Pie Island and Richmond Lock Bridge for the past couple of weeks.  Here is a selection of my photos.
