Thames Path - Hatts

Thames Path - Hatts

by: Leigh Hatts
This guide to the Thames Path National Trail describes the journey from the Thames Barrier in London to the source of this great river 180 miles away in rural Gloucestershire. The advantage of walking the route this way is the climax of the last 22 miles of the infant Thames leading to the river's source just below the Roman Foss Way. It's a personal choice, of course, but many walkers may prefer this finale to the bustle of London's dockland. A purist may say a river walk should follow the river from source to sea, but if you prefer a tranquil ending to a grand one, then this is the guide for you.

The Thames, once an important waterway, links a string of historic sites, from Greenwich, the Houses of Parliament and Lambeth Palace in the city, to rural Hampton Court Palace and Runneymede. The beautiful upper reaches of the path run through peaceful countryside in Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. The route is described in 20 sections of between 4 and 16 miles in length and full colour OS Landranger (1:50,000) mapping accompanies the text. For each section all the vital practical information you require for planning and walking the path is provided, including refreshments, accommodation options and transport. Plenty of background information should ensure your curious interest in things and places passed along the way are answered.
