City guardians

A set of glinting, silver bulwarks protect riverside capital London from being overwhelmed by flooding. If you walk along the Thames Path from Woolwich, this is the sight you get, with the lofty might of Docklands beyond the barrier. A stretch of the walkway is etched with the high water marks of communities down the Thames – including Hammersmith, a familiar neighbourhood.

The barriers look like hoods swathed in bumpy tin foil, but this is a stirring sight and an absorbing place to photograph.
