The walk is based on the ancient Roman town of Cirencester and goes through the grounds of the Royal Agricultural College, a mixture of sports fields and pasture, before reaching farmland. Old tracks and field edges lead to the stone marking the source of the Thames in a secluded corner. To find flowing water though, you must cross several more fields when a discreet trespass reveals a stone circle with water gushing out and the Isis in full flow, in a matter of yards. Lanes and tracks lead back to the outskirts of Cirencester.
