Thames Lock
Temple Lock
Temple Lock is a lock and weir situated on the Buckinghamshire bank of the River Thames near Temple Mill Island. It was first built by the Thames Navigation Commissioners in 1773.
The weir runs across from the lock to the Berkshire bank a short distance upstream of the lock.
The pound lock was built in 1773, the sixth downstream of the eight constructed after the passing of the 1770 navigation act.
In 1890 a new lock was built alongside the original one.
River Thames
The River Thames rises at Thames Head in Gloucestershire on the slopes of the Cotswolds and flows generally eastward to its mouth near Southend in Essex. At 215 miles long it is one of the longest rivers in Britain. It is one of the most important rivers in Britain. LinkExternal link
