The footbridge to Thames Ditton Island
The footbridge to Thames Ditton Island
Seen from the foreshore near Ye Olde Swan pub, this view is of the suspension bridge to Thames Ditton Island which was completed in 1914. It is only open to residents and has a locked gate on this side of the river to ensure that.

After the wettest winter on record and extensive flooding by the Thames the river was exceptionally high and fast-flowing. It seemed that many of the properties on the island were flooded and on the mainland sandbags were to be seen everywhere.
