Publisher Description

The Thames Path runs from Kemble in Gloucestershire to the Thames Flood Barrier at Greenwich. A total 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 throughout the ages. Travel with me as I follow our greatest river from its tiny beginnings. Gently passing through the watermeadows of the upper reaches then enjoying the delights of the "Royal Thames" before arriving in the bustling capital city. We will learn of the engineering brilliance of Brunel and the other men who contributed to 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 whilst enjoying the glorious splendour of the River Thames.
