The Non-Tidal Locks of the River Thames
Listed in order from Lechlade (St Johns) to Teddington with  statistics

NOTE: Every year I stick a bit of paper near the dashboard with a list of locks, when we go on our annual upriver cruise, because even after almost thirty years sailing or cruising the river Thames, I can never remember them all! Sad but true. Now all I (and you) have to do is print out this web page. Now with Lock Phone Numbers also!

To check on the current state of the Thames please follow these links

River Thames: current river conditions

Flow and Level Data from GaugeMap

You will notice the table runs downriver. A nuisance since many of us start by going up! However it will be correct when we return back downriver. Also the distances in columns six and seven do not relate (add up). They came from different sources/maps/books, so I claim no responsibility at all! Finally, I shall eventually add bridge heights too.
