Thames Barrier, Woolwich
Opened in 1984, the Thames Barrier is the world's largest movable flood barrier, spanning a third of a mile across the Thames at Woolwich, South East London.
Built to protect London from the effects of global warming and surge tides (which occur during/after severe meteorological conditions), by Sept 2005, the barrier has been raised 90 times.
