Route description
Route description

From the Ferryman Inn at Bablock Hythe, the path leaves the river here for a while, returning at Skinner’s Weir and along to Pinkhill Weir. Between Wytham Great Wood and the Thames, the path leads on to Oxford’s edge, the spectacular Sandford Weir and then Culham and Cholsey.

A departure from the river bank brings us through Moulsford, but soon returns, going past Streatley and Whitchurch-on-Thames. A short deviation through the town of Purley Park, past Tilehurst, Reading, finally arriving at Hurley Caravan & Camping which is Camp-Site Two for Thames Challenge competitors, or the conclusion of The Oxford Ultra.
