Current advice for walkers
The Thames Path National Trail is a great way to enjoy the countryside beside the river, but is often very narrow. This makes it difficult for people on the path to stay safely 2m apart from other people.
The Thames Path volunteer scheme has been put on hold for the duration of the Covid-19 restrictions. This means that our volunteers are not able to monitor all 184 miles of the trail and report on safety issues including obstructions, erosion, damaged signs, fallen trees. If anyone does spot anything that would be a risk to the safety of people using the Path, please report the location, giving OS coordinates if possible, to Thames.Path@oxfordshire.gov.uk and we will do our best to work with partner Highway Authorities, the Environment Agency and landowners to resolve the problem.
The Thames Path National Trail will still be here for you to enjoy after the current Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
