The town of Teddington on the River Thames in England in the western suburbs of London.
has been around (in one form or another) for at least a thousand years.
The very first lock at Teddington was built in 1810 and was made of timber, this quickly became dilapidated and was replaced in 1856.
In 1940 Teddington Lock was the assembly point for an enormous flotilla of small ships from the length of the River Thames to be used in the Evacuation of Dunkirk.
The lock was also the location of the Monty Python Fish-Slapping Dance sketch.
