Thames Path Challenge

big ma with completed sectionsRob and I are walking the 184miles of the Thames Path, from the source of Old Father Thames to the Thames Barrier. You can find out loads about the Thames Path on the National Trail website. 

How far did you say?

Below is the rough mileage per section.  Generally these mileages are determined by where there are good drop off/pick up points or places to leave vehicles/well served by public transport.

*A 1.5mile stretch south of Lechlade is not safe to walk at the moment. The path runs along the A361 while the National Trail are still negotiating a better route. They encourage walkers to get the bus or taxi up. So it isn’t cheating, but it is going to stop us getting killed!
