Molesey & Hampton Court


Molesey Boat Club

Molesey Boat Club was founded in 1866 and quickly gained a reputation for success. It has since become one of the premier clubs in the UK with its members achieving medals at all levels.


Molesey Lock

Situated on the River Thames in England at East Molesey near to Hampton Court Palace the the lock was built by the City of London Corporation in 1815 and is the second longest on the river at 81.78 m (268′ 4”).  Beside the lock there are rollers for the portage of small boats.  Ash Island is on the other side of the weir  with a backwater behind it continuing to a smaller weir upstream.

We blagged our way into the Palace as we wanted to got to the embroiderers guild shop.

Unfortunately we were too early so we will have to go another time.12
