Shepperton Lock, River Thames

Location: River Thames, Weybridge, Duration: 2 weeks


Shepperton Lock is a lock on the River Thames, in England by the left bank at Shepperton, Surrey. It is across the river from Weybridge which is nearby linked by a passenger ferry. The lock in Charles Dickens Our Mutual Friend at Plashwater Mill is based on Shepperton lock.


Spelthorne Borough Council is setting a trend, working alongside the River Thames Task Group on several improvements for river users. The refurbishment work included the renewal of the floor and ceiling coverings and the addition of new cubicles, toilets, vanity units, taps, washroom accessories and baby changing facilities. Disabled facilities are also available.

“I thought it was a good opportunity to write and thank Glynn and OrcaSpaces for the hard work at Shepperton Lock. We are really pleased with the outcome and feedback from local residents and visitors has been all positive. From the beginning of the project and the first site visit, right through to completion the team has been very professional and approachable. As is usual with a job such as this, we encountered a few problems but they were dealt with in a professional and timely manner and the finished job looks great. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend OrcaSpaces on future projects.”
