this is the lovely swinford bridge which is a toll bridge (cost 5pence and the owners don’t pay tax due to a deal with King George III !)
anyway, we were back to the thames path yesterday and this stretch was the 8 miles between bablock hythe to godstow. we came across this sign at the point where we thought we were halfway (but obviously weren’t!)

One Response to thames path – part 10 bablock hythe to godstow

  • Nice to see the old homeland. We regularly walked this section when we lived in Eynsham in our pre-child days.
    Random trivia: the pub in the final picture was a favourite of Inspector Morse and your lunch is sometimes stolen by a peacock if you sit in the garden.
