  • This lock provides not only the lock facilities for boats on the Thames, but also a route for walkers across the river. Take a selfie photo in the middle. Lovely views each way  more »
  • Richmond lock and weir is located close to Richmond town centre and was first opened in 1894. The foot bridges are closed in the evenings. Really nice to walk down this part of the river Thames especially on clear warm afternoons. Took a short walk from Richmond along the Thames ending at Richmond Lock & Weir. It would appear that it has recently been renovated & is very picturesque. A working Lock dating back to 1800's. Fascinating 😍
  • I needed my Tenent Locks Changed Fast. I called Richmond Lock & Key. They gave me a Great Quote over the phone and said could be to me in a half hour. And they Were. Of course, we compensated him for his time, but he was generous enough to give us the key he had cut at a significantly discounted rate. Not how we intended to spend our money on Black Friday, but really glad we supported this local business!
