Thames Trail baton comes home

Council leader celebrates 200 mile celebration with Thames Trail chairman

A relay to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Thames National Trail is now complete.

A special commemorative baton has been carried by 16 people in a relay covering over 200 miles from source to sea over the last 16 days.

The Leader of Oxfordshire County Council, Cllr Ian Hudspeth brought the baton back to Steve Good, Chairman of The Thames Path National Trail Partnership, at the end of the 20th anniversary baton relay source to sea.

The baton was returned to Eynsham Lock where Oxfordshire County Council host the trail team.

Hundreds of people took part in the walking, some booking on just for one day others coming in groups representing The Ramblers, the River Thames Society and our very own Thames Path National Trail Volunteers.
