Hello, Mrs Hg137 here.
While walking the Thames Path, we came across this geocoin. And what a striking trackable, in such an appropriate place! This is one of the National Trail geocoins which were released in the summer of 2013 to celebrate the national trails of England and Wales. There is a link to them, and a picture – maybe of this very coin! – on the National Trails website for the Thames Path http://www.nationaltrail.co.uk/thames-path/geocaching
The National Trail geocoins have different missions. Some want to travel all of the National Trails, others want to stay on the trail where they were released, or to visit all the counties in the country, etc. This particular coin wants to visit as many trails as possible, and it has so far visited the Ridgeway, Thames Path, and parts of the South West Coast Path. We think we will move it to another location on the Thames Path, but we aren’t sure yet.
