High spring tide covers Thames Path at Greenwich

A VERY high tide saw the Thames sloshing across the Thames path at Greenwich on Friday and Saturday.

The Environment Agency had earlier issued flood alerts for the Tidal Thames riverside between the Thames Barrier and Putney.

Seeing the path outside the Old Royal Naval College covered with water is not uncommon – the Environment Agency doesn’t close the Barrier unless they believe the tide level will rise higher still – but it does make for a very interesting spectacle.

Here are some photographs and a short video clip from the high tide in Greenwich yesterday afternoon…

    rjp – My daughter saw a jogger come a cropper at Greenwich as she just ran into the water whilst paying too much attention to her headphones!
