Summary

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 over 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, Chesshyre explores the living present and remarkable past of England's longest and most iconic river.

Very enjoyable romp along The Thames

Very good listen, superbly read by David Thorpe who I have to say, having heard him several times now, is brilliant.
Takes into account the people, the places, with a good dose of humour, which by the sounds of it is essential for this journey.
The one thing that gets on your nerves is dear old Tom banging on about Brexit...why? Get over it Tom, we have had the vote,don't let it get to you...This aside it was still a good listen, but I have scored it 4 stars for the story as he let himself down with the politics.

I think Tom could become a name for the future, he has the attention to observe people and the places he visits spot on and I wish him well.

Good listen

Great listen. Does exactly what it says on the tin, a diary of a walk highlighting lots of local interest along the way. I recently purchased "Watling Street" and was slightly disappointed as it was full of the author's ramblings about local celebrities.
