From Source to Sea : Notes from a 215-Mile Walk Along the River Thames (Hardcover) (Tom Chesshyre)
about this item
Over the years, authors, artists, and amblers aplenty have felt the pull of the Thames, and now travel writer Tom Chesshyre is following in their footsteps. He’s walking the length of the river from the Cotswolds to the North Sea—a winding journey of more than 200 miles. Join him for an illuminating stroll past meadows, churches, palaces, country (and council) estates, factories, and dockyards. Seeing some familiar sights through new eyes, and meeting a host of interesting characters along the way, Tom explores the living present and remarkable past of England’s longest and most iconic river.
