Desborough Cut, River Thames
A barge exiting the eastern end of the Desborough Cut to rejoin the main river. This cut was dug in the early 1930s to take out the river bends at Halliford and names after Lord Desborough the president of the Thames Conservancy Board. This cut created a new island in the Thames now named Desborough Island. The arch of the new Walton-on-Thames river bridge can be seen in the left distance.
