The Thames today

TODAY WE continue with our occasional series The Thames today.

The Thames forms the southern boundary of four East London boroughs: Tower Hamlets, Newham, Barking & Dagenham and Havering. In one way it is a barrier, sealing off one direction of exit. In other ways, it is a magnificent natural resource, which most of us take it for granted.

Today’s photo was taken on 28th December 2021 and shows an extremely large ship anchored in South Dock on the Isle of Dogs. Who lives in a ship like this? Sadly, we have no idea.

If you have a photo of the Thames which you would like to share with our readers and viewers, please send it to us on, stating when and where it was taken and whether you would like a photo credit.
