TQ4981 : Outfall of the Beam River

near to South Hornchurch, Havering, Great Britain

Outfall of the Beam River
Outfall of the Beam River
On the left is an outfall through the river wall, drowned at this state of the tide, on the right a new outfall that looks as if it is to cope with extreme flows in the Beam. This was also the site of the entrance lock to the aborted Romford Canal. The lock was certainly completed sufficiently to be called a lock on contemporary maps, but there is some doubt that it could actually function as such. The drainage authority was very worried about breaching the river wall here, at the site of the historic Dagenham Breach. Viewed from the 'Princess Pocahontas' cruising upriver from Gravesend.
