This superb walk takes the Thames Path from Shillingford Bridge to visit Day's Lock and Dorchester, then goes on to Warborough along field-paths. Wonderful, quintessentially English villages are a joy to behold, with evocative links to our past. Dorchester is a very special place with a 6th Century abbey, established after Birinus, the Pope's missionary, baptised Cynegils, the first Christian King of Wessex. It has a wonderful sense of presence and is open to visitors. There is a tea room, museum and giftshop also.

Interesting walk, picturesque villages, good instructions and spot on GPS-wise. Only comment relates to lack of info about parking your car at start of walk. Two options: a) private Hotel Car park near bridge though you may be charged £15 especially if you take opportunity to have BBQ/picnic or b) lay-by in Shillingford down road from Kingfisher Arms and start walk from WM03.
