Teddington Lock

Teddington Lock is a complex of three locks and a weir on the River Thames in England between Ham and Teddington in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It was first built in 1810; the limit of legal powers between the Port of London Authority, the navigation authority downstream to the North Sea and that upstream to small headwaters of the river, the Environment Agency, is marked nearby by an obelisk on the "Surrey" bank. The weir named Teddington Weir is the lowest on the Thames; this lock is the lowest full-tide lock and second lowest of all-tide locks on the Thames. The complex of civil engineering or infrastructure in essence consists of a large long weir and three locks: a conventional launch lock in regular use large barge lock and a small skiff lock; the barge lock was made to accommodate long barges, steamers or passenger ferries and has an additional set of gates half-way to operate more for shorter craft. The staggered structures incorporate two reinforced narrow islands; the upper island is traversed by and accessible by Teddington Lock Footbridge.

The greater lock is against the general south bank of the river, for 500 m north-east here. The river downstream of the lock is the Richmond and Twickenham reach of the Tideway, a 3.2-mile reach of semi-tidal river due to the fact the Richmond Lock and half-tide barrages limits the fall of water thereby maintaining a head of water to aid navigability at and around low tide. Though the weir at Teddington Weir marks the managed river's usual tidal limit, after prolonged rainfall causing high fluvial flow at high tide, a higher limit of slack water causes eddies to arise as far upstream as the top of this reach, the next lock; the large, bow-shaped Teddington Weir is against the opposite bank. A series of two footbridges at differing heights make up a structure which crosses the locks, the middle island that has the lock keeper's cabin and the weir pool, Teddington Lock Footbridge; the Navigation Act obtained in April 1771 by the Thames Navigation Commission did not allow them to build locks below Maidenhead Bridge, but from 1802, several plans for locks in the First District of the Thames, stretching from Staines to Teddington, were drawn up.

Stephen Leach took over the post of Clerk of Works for the First District in 1802, following the retirement of Charles Truss at the age of 82. Just before his retirement, Truss proposed locks at Molesey and Teddington, each having a weir with long tumbling bays, similar to modern practice. John Rennie had suggested a series of long cuts in 1794, Truss adopted the same idea. Rennie and William Jessop again proposed four long cuts in 1805, each about 1.5 miles, but the Navigation Committee were thwarted by strong opposition from landowners. Zacchary Allnutt, by Surveyor for the Second and Third Districts, stretching from Staines to Mapledurham near Reading, suggested locks at Chertsey and Teddington in 1805. Rennie submitted new proposals in 1809 for nine locks between Twickenham. Leach drafted plans in 1810, which he suggested were "at once practicable and expedient, the least expensive, the most to pass through Parliament without opposition and yet calculated to remedy the most prominent evils complained of."

An Act of Parliament was obtained by the City of London Corporation in June 1810, which authorised construction of locks and weirs at Chertsey, Shepperton and Teddington. Each would be 150 by 20 feet with the associated weirs having ample capacity for flood conditions. Rennie and the Navigation Committee visited the sites in July, to finalise the positioning of the lock. Leach took charge of the work, undertaken by contractors Joseph Kimber and John Dows who built Sunbury Lock. Work at Teddington started in September 1810, but there were delays caused by flooding in November and December, Leach awarded the contractors an extra £500; the lock was finished and opened in June 1811. The cofferdam protecting the works would need to be removed as river levels rose in the winter, which would have delayed completion until the following July, so again Leach stepped in, awarding advance payments to the contractors, which enabled them to finish on time; the lock was further upstream than the present lock complex at the point where the footbridge now crosses.

It comprised three pairs of gates as stipulated in the act. Total cost for lock, weir and ground was £22,035 10s. ​7 1⁄2d. of which the land from Lord Dysart's estate cost £282 10s. 5d.. The lock was, at first unpopular with the local fishermen and bargemen. After attempts to smash it, the lock keeper was granted permission to keep "a blunderbuss with bayonet attached thereto" to ward off attacks. By 1827 the timber lock needed considerable repair and in 1829 the weir was destroyed by an accumulation of ice, it is noted. At that time steam vessels were limited to travel as far as Richmond; as built, the lock had timber sides up to normal head water level, turf above that. The crest of the weir was 3.5 feet above low water level at Teddington, but following the removal of the piers of old London Bridge in 1832, the drop increased t

Storm and Cumberland's partnership dissolved in acrimony in 1871. Storm encountered serious health problems that left him without work and confined to hospital. A friendship with Emerson Coatsworth gained Storm commission to design new elementary schools across the city. One of these buildings, today Inglenook Community High School, survives today, he won a commission to build St. Andrew's Church.
