We often shoot at some stunning locations in the UK and abroad, however shooting at the magnificent Thames Barrier was truly awesome.  The Thames Barrier is 1 of the largest movable flood barriers in the world. It spans 520 metres across the River Thames near Woolwich, and it protects 125 square kilometres of central London from flooding caused by tidal surges. It has 10 steel gates that can be raised into position across the River Thames. When raised, the main gates stand as high as a 5-storey building and as wide as the opening of Tower Bridge. Each main gate weighs 3,300 tonnes. The Environment Agency has closed the Thames Barrier 175 times since it became operational in 1982 (correct as of April 2015). Of these closures, 88 were to protect against tidal flooding and 87 were to alleviate river flooding. We were on location for a French production agency who are producing a documentary on flooding. You can view the trailer for the documentary which is due to be aired in August here Here is our team on location: Thames Barrier1 Thames Barrier2 Thames Barrier3
