Two mile walk taking in The Wysis Way and Thames Path
You willl find Kemble by travelling the A429 - between Cirencester and Tetbury.
This delightful two mile walk began and ended at the Kemble Railway Station car park which stands close to the Tavern pub, built in the mid 19th century as a tavern for rail workers and travellers.
|Stones & more stones!|
The Tavern is an Arkell's pub, so they were drinking Moonlight, which gives off the most delicious toasty aromas.
Kemble is but two miles from the source of the Thames, which would explain why Pythius did not find the kind of river he had expected at this time of the year when the water table is low. Had we walked further down the Thames path no doubt we would have encuntered a point where one of the many tributaries that flow into the Thames was in full flood. But we didn't.
While at Kemble, it is worth taking a look at the historic railway station designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1845 - it is a glorious little station - totally unspoiled and very atmospheric.
