Memorial

Wall - 1817 Thames flood level markers

Plaque: Wall - 1817

Inscription

This wall was erected and the piles fixed Anno Domini 1817.
William Smith - Warden. 

Site: Thames flood level markers (3 memorials)

SE10, High Bridge Wharf, Trinity Hospital

Reading left to right these plaques are:  Tide - 1874, Wall - 1817, Tide - 1928.   We think the organisation for which the Wardens worked is probably Trinity House.  The BBC has a good page about London floodings.
