it was back to the thames path yesterday for the latest thrilling instalment of our Thames Path walk. we did quite a long stretch which involved some steepish hill climbs for once.
there were some amazing riverside buildings, many with strange features like this airborne conservatory
there were also a lot more trains in the background as one of the UK’s main train lines goes whizzing parallel with the thames for a bit
at one point we climbed up a steep hill to find a geocache and had our picnic looking at this amazing view
BR and Mike joined the regulars of our family and jane’s parents
the weather was quite amazing, and with the trees still in leaf we kept getting these fantastic windows through to the river
i think this was the view from whitchurch toll bridge
and here’s most of the team (except esther and me)
there was plenty of passing boat traffic for amusement too
and although we didn’t end at a pub this time, we did have an icecream at the lock shop
so, can there really only be 78.5 miles to go to the end ?
the next bit of the path leaves the river for a bit and does a fair stretch on the road i think which is a bit of a shame.
so there you go.
