Strolling along

Being 346 km (or 215 miles) long, it is no wonder that the River Thames crosses many villages, towns and cities in England. It has around 44 locks including the one where the World’s Poohsticks Championship is held since 1984, Day’s Lock.
The Thames is so integral to English and Londoners as two thirds if London’s drinking water comes from this river. It crosses at this point Kingston, an ancient market town where Saxon kings were crowned. A nice stroll for a lazy and sunny Sunday early afternoon.
