Description

The Thames Path runs from Kemble in Gloucestershire to the Thames Flood Barrier at Greenwich, a journey of 184 miles. Along the way I explore the places of interest and all the fascinating histories and characters that have influenced life along the river. Travel with me as I follow our greatest river from its tiny beginnings as a puddle, gently passing through the quiet watermeadows of the upper reaches, then enjoying the delights of the middle reaches of the "Royal Thames" before arriving in the bustling capital city. Along the way we will admire the engineering brilliance of Brunel and those men who created our transport systems. We will learn of the plotting and chicanery of Thomas Wolsey and the romantic tragedy of the "Fair Rosamund". Above all we will take a light-hearted look at our surroundings while enjoying the glorious splendour of the River Thames.
