Trail Guide to the Body: A hands-on guide to locating muscles, bones and more
About this deal
Hi, planning on starting the Thames path with my son, who’s not always the most willing of hikers…… After Erith you need to prepare yourself to do a boring main road walk if you plan to reach Slade Green or Crayford.
We have done the South Downs and the Pennine Way in day walks between carparks adjacent to the route. With two cars you can leapfrog efficiently and cover 10 to 15 miles a day. I’m planning a charity walk taking in around 100 miles of the Thames Path, ideally ending at the Thames Barrier. If you’ve got this far, then hopefully you’re preparing to put your walking boots on very soon. I hope you have an excellent walk.Forgotten the title or the author of a book?

But I think readers should be aware that you can walk the other way! If you know the Thames in London you will want to find the source and have the fun of finding the river becoming more and more narrow. Given the river’s importance, it’s only natural that someone would want to make a walking trail that follows it. That’s the Thames Path National Trail, and it’s a National Trail like no others. It is particularly well signed both ways, with clear markings (and maps) at the beginning and end of the new section.The walk between Lime house and Island gardens is the worst part of the walk as there are mostly private properties and restricted areas near river which you cant enter. You have to go on a side road and then re-join. Nigel, I walked that stretch on the south side last year. Last February there was a diversion on the Greenwich Peninsula due to building work. It wasn’t well signposted but might be finished now of course!
