Cookham: Flood defence wall
Cookham: Flood defence wall
Cookham has always been prone to flooding from the River Thames, and the flood events of November 1894 and March 1947 caused severe inundation and damage. This is the flood defence wall along the western side of Cookham, constructed by the Environment Agency in 2002/3. Beyond the wall to the left is Cookham Moor leading down to the Thames in the distance, marked by the sails on dinghies. On this side to the right is the protected area of the town.
