Hurley Lock is a lock on the river Thames just past Temple Lock and before Hambledon Lock. The unique position of the lock means that it situation between a clump of wooden islands close to Hurley village. On one of the islands there are picnic facilities and a gradual incline into shallow water making it suitable for children to paddle (under supervision). Its a really pretty spot and on a nice day you’ll find children of all ages making the most of the natural features on the island.
