Staines Bridge

Staines has enjoyed a river crossing bridge since roman times. The present bridge designed by Rennie is the successor to four other bridges which once stood at this point. The present bridge, a beautifully proportioned three arched stone structure was opened in 1832 by William IV. Public Moorings are available as well as the riverside "Swan Hotel"

The Thames and Wey combining at Weybridge. Here two photographs have been aligned side by side to show the meeting of the waters where the River Wey (on the left) joins the River Thames. The Wey flows each side of a group of small islands (centre left). To the right, part of the River Thames divides itself and flows around another island, before rushing down a weir to join the main river.
