The Thames Path - Leigh Hatts
The perfect guide to walking the Thames Path, this book is both a guidebook and Ordnance Survey map booklet with the full route of the Thames Path National Trail.
The 180-mile route from the Thames Barrier to the river's source near Cirencester, passes from central London through Windsor, Henley, and Oxford, and rural countryside. The Thames Path describes the walk in 20 sections, ranging from 4 to 16 miles of mainly flat walking with food access by public transport. Typically the whole route takes two weeks to walk, so this is a great way of planning your days. Includes comprehensive information about accommodation, facilities, refreshments and transport links for each stage of the route and is crammed with fascinating details about the places and features passed along the way.
A separate pocket-sized map booklet of 1:25,000 scale OS maps shows the full route, providing all the mapping needed to complete the trail. The route description links together with the map booklet at each stage along the way, and the compact format is conveniently sized to fit in a pocket.
