January 1 2015 – Thames Path Caching Challenge

This year we’ve set ourselves a caching challenge!

To walk the 180 or so miles of the Thames Path – from source to sea (Greenwich), caching as we go!

Thames Overview

Thames Overview

The Thames Path broadly follows the River Thames from the Cotswolds near Cirencester, through major towns such as Oxford and Windsor before arriving in the hustle and bustle of London.

For much of the route the path is adjacent to the river; however there are occasions when the path and river deviate. This may be because there is no footpath next to the river or the river may be in flood (as it was during early 2014), making the footpath impassable.

We will attempt most of the “straightforward” caches along the way, however as want to give ourselves the best chance of finishing the walk this year, we will pass on those that are too difficult, challenging and time-consuming.

Our main caching focus will be the Thames Path, but I’m quite sure we will squeeze in a few others too!

Wish us luck on our challenge and of course, if you’d like to join us for any stage do let us know!
