|Tony has always wanted to look inside the Thames barrier
to see the workings, and as we had 6 or 7 hours with nothing to do before we needed to be at the airport, we decided to go and have a look.
Of course we had to go on a day that it was closed! !!!
But we had look at it from the riverbank after fighting the London traffic for almost 2 hours to go 24 miles. Then we had to fight it going to the airport.
It filled in the morning though, which meant we didn't have to sit around the airport.
