Chelsea Embankment

Designed by Sir Joseph Bazalgette. Apart from providing a pleasant riverside walk, it was built with the dual purpose of providing a flood barrier and as a covering for the main low level sewer for West London. It runs along the north bank of the Thames from Chelsea Bridge to Albert Bridge.
