Having walked bits and bobs of the Thames Path as part of the Jubilee Greenway and the Thames Path Challenge all the way from the start to Henley on Thames, I decided to do it properly.  So why, when I have already completed around 80 miles of this, do I not just start from Henley? Well, it would be quite nice to see the whole trail in the day time and there’s and to have a defined start and end to the route (weird, I know).

However, despite the sections of the train in Greater London being perfect candidates for winter walking and the official website stating that the prevailing wind is from the west making it a good idea to walk from the source to the Thames Barrier, where’s the fun in that? I want to pretend I am doctor Livingstone searching for the source of the Nile, So I am going the other way.  This also means I don’t need to worry about the planning of getting to the more remote sections until later.
