Fanshawe Dam


Fanshawe Dam

Fanshawe Dam is located on the eastern edge of London, Ontario. It is approximately 100' in height with Fanshawe Lake to its east.

After repeated floods, the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority built the dam to control the level of the Thames River; it opened in 1952.
