In Search of the Source of the River Thames

Thames PathToday (Sunday) I took the train to Kemble to go in search of the source of the mighty river Thames. From the station I walked into the village and soon picked up the Thames Path – a nationally recognised path that follows the entire length of the river. After traversing through numerous fields (including a cow field) I finally came to the stone that marks the source. The source marker stone is most disappointing – not really fit for purpose as you can’t easily read the inscription. I headed back to the station where I ate some Sunday lunch at the pub, before heading back into Swindon. Just in time as the hoards from the Womad festival were beginning to congregate at Kemble station.
