Thames flood level markers at Trinity Hospital, Greenwich
Thames flood level markers at Trinity Hospital, Greenwich
These plaques are on the river wall directly outside TQ3878 : Riverside entrance to Trinity Hospital, Greenwich. The text reads: [TOP] This wall was erected - and the piles fixed - Anno Domini 1817 - William Smith, Warden. [LEFT] Variable high tides - March 30th 1874 - Joseph Giles, Warden. [RIGHT] Extraordinary high tide - January 7th 1928 - when 75ft of this wall were demolished - Leonard Collyer, Warden. Hopefully the Thames Barrier a few miles downstream will mean that no such plaques are needed again.
