The bar at Thames Head Inn
2 September 2019, Monday
Thames Path day 1
We found our way cross the fields to the source of the Thames. Very dry. The source consists of a stone monument and a sign for the Thames path as well as a circle of stones showing the spring that occasionally has water as a source of the Thames.
We were almost to Ewen before we saw the first puddles of water in pools where the Thames normally would flow. But today was nice and a walk was lovely.
At the closed Wild Duck Inn we called for a taxi and went into Cirencester. Here we came for a restaurant and view the old Roman City. The taxi left us at the Fleece restaurant where we had lunch. When visited a bank and the pharmacy to pick up some items we need it. We walked through St Mary's Church past the old Abbey grounds and the Roman wall. The original gate into the Abbey was called Norman gate and we saw that as well as the old Roman amphitheater on the hill above surin Cirencester
Well we made only 2.7 miles of progress on the Thames Path we
Father Thames. We will see the real one in a couple of days
walked over 10.2 miles for the day with all our walking around Cirencester. About 5 pm we got a taxi and went back to the Thames Head Inn where we had dinner and spent the night again.
