The Thames Path.
Though not an organized event, the Thames Path National Trail provides a super opportunity to explore the English countryside while raising funds. You can choose one of the many wonderful sections, take on the National Trail between Putney and Lechlade, or the entire 288km from the source near Kemble (Gloucestershire) to the Thames Barrier.
One of our founding members walked from the Thames Barrier to the source, over 16 days in 2005. She would be delighted to talk with you about this unique trail, and help you plan your own walk. Please contact us for more information.
