Full Description


The River Thames is constantly changing, from cool, calm waters in the summer to raging torrents in the winter. Man has intervened over the years to shape and alter the course of this great river, often to turn the wheels of mills and sometimes to protect property. Each change has gradually shaped the Thames into the river we see today. But what great structures are now missing? With evocative names like Hart's and Medley, these long-vanished locks and weirs have been forgotten like a swirl in the water. Keen Edge, Spade Oak and My Lady were grand names for some of the numerous ferries that once plied their trade across the river, essential links to riverside communities, now broken. Containing many unusual photographs, Brian Eade's Forgotten Thames illustrates the changing face of Britain's favourite river, delighting visitors and historians alike.
