Thames Path : Dorchester to Abingdon
Second walk of the 2016 season continues the Thames path onwards from Dorchester. This was a 9 mile wall plus around 1.5 miles walking at both ends (Oxford rail to X39 bus, Dorchester bypass to Thames, Thames to X3 bus, X3 bus to Oxford rail. Very tiring!
Note that due to the large meandering loops in the river, various landmarks such as Didcot power station appear at different aspects throughout the walk. The weather was changeable – only a couple of minutes of rain part way into the large loop after Day’s lock, but clouds moving all around.
