The pub is the White Swan, Twickenham.

 

There is a road between the river and pub (subject to flooding) which prob fooled most.

Thank you to everyone who had a go at identifying the pub. Thank you to Mark for identifying it. I said above that the I was posting the last ones I needed identified but i'm sorry there is one more I forgot about. I hope the photo is clear enough.

Deffo Walsham Flood Lock on Wey Navigation, Surrey near Ripley as SG identified. A lovely spot.

 

I pass it often in the bote.

The lock is full open at normal flows - ie "upper and lower" gates are open - so you pass right through the lock in normal flows.

 

At times of flood the gates are closed forcing the water to build up a level above the lock and send excess flood water over the weir. The cottage houses a National Trust person who manages the gates, weir and is also the lengthsman.

Thanks!  It is a lovely spot.  I am ashamed to say not been there by boat since 1985, when it rained all the way to Godalming, but  I did walk that stretch recently.

As always, a huge thank you for all your help over the last few months. What a wonderful forum. I will of course mention the forum in my book and acknowledge all the help I have been given.
