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.

Pleasant walk all be it very muddy most of the way around. Directions pretty good. In fairness to the Royal Agricultural College signage of the footpaths is a little better now through there grounds, even a plaque telling you a little bit of history about the Monarch Way
