Thames Barrier

Like many major cities around the world London was established along a major river, with the world's oceans on the rise safe guards against flooding are a necessity, the Thames Barrier is one such precaution. It is the world's largest moveable flood barrier and cost £480 million to construct, all ten gates are tested each month for two hours with a full day closure in the autumn. This exhibition which includes a working model of the Barrier explains the natural forces that caused the Barrier to be built.
