Thames Path - Trailblazer Guide

Thames Path - Trailblazer Guide

by: Joel Newton
The Thames Path is a National Trail that runs for 184 miles (294km) from the river's source at Thames Head near Kemble in the Cotswolds to the Thames Barrier in London. The scenery is magnificently varied ranging from wild and lonely sections of the upper reaches of the river to equally impressive urban vistas in London. Passing so many ancient sites - Oxford, Lechlade, Abingdon, Henley, Runnymede, Windsor and through the centre of London - this is as much a walk through history as an easy ramble along a river bank.

One of the strengths of Trailblazer guides is the mapping and this guide includes 99 detailed maps at the large scale of 1:20,000, making route finding easy. The unique mapping features include walking times, directions, tricky junctions, places to stay, places to eat and points of interest. These are not general purpose maps but fully edited maps drawn by walkers for walkers. The maps are supported by detailed route descriptions. Itineraries cover hiking the 184 mile route in its entirety or sampling the delights on day walks or short breaks and include detailed public transport information for all access points. There is practical information for all budgets, what to see, where to stay, where to eat including pubs, hotels, B&B, camping and hostels. The introductory chapters also include planning the walk, the environment and nature, plus some colour photographs. An appendix of GPS waypoints is provided.
