Thames treats

Canal Boat - - Letters -

WE EN­JOYED OUR Thames trip this sum­mer. We trav­elled down the Grand Union, then Padding­ton, Lit­tle Venice, Re­gent’s Canal to Lime Street Basin, and up the Thames to the top at Lech­lade.

The Thames was fan­tas­tic. It was very dif­fer­ent to the canals in many ways, par­tic­u­larly as the banks are all owned by some farmer or other. As soon as you put a pin in some­one leaps out of the bushes and says “that will be £10 please”.

I have to say, if you plan the tidal Thames and have the right equip­ment, it is a very re­ward­ing trip, and I can thor­oughly rec­om­mend it.
