|Description: The tidal Thames stretches from the sea as far inland as Teddington in Middlesex. Slightly under 160 km (100 miles) in length, this stretch of river offers a wealth of different scenes - from the almost open sea in the estuary, to the green and leafy islands (or aits as they are known) around Isleworth and Brentford, with the unique views of industrial London in between. In this photograph of the shoreline at Greenwich, Deptford Power Station with its large chimneys can be seen in the background.|
