Riverside, north bank, west of the Tower. Eton Rowing Lake North End


Riverside, north bank, west of the Tower. Eton Rowing Lake North End

This post covers sites to the north of the river only. South of the river is Monkey Island Lane

Post to the north Monkey Island and  Dorney Reach and Amerden
Post to the east Dornay Lake


This riverside strip appears to have been completely empty with the exception of a riverside path until 1906 when the Eton College Dornay Rowing Lake was begun. This square covers a small part of the western end – and the bulk of it will be covered in the next square.
A pumping station is shown on maps near the riverside and no information about it appears to be available and it is assumed it is part of the infrastrucrure of the lake.
