20th Anniversary Thames Path Baton Walks Saturday 9th July to Sunday 24th July 2016

The Thames Path is a National Trail, first proposed in 1948 and inaugurated 24th July 1996.
Like many of Britain’s National Trails, its existence is due in large part to the efforts of the Ramblers, and particularly David Sharp, who led the successful campaign to establish the Thames Path. The path follows the length of the River Thames from its source near Kemble in Gloucestershire to the Thames Barrier at Charlton. It is about 184 miles (296 km) long

The Ramblers is celebrating the 20th anniversary with a sequence of walks along the route passing a baton from one to the next. GWG is taking part in walks 1 and 2
