The Thames


Category: Tag:


The Thames is the most famous and best loved of English rivers, for centuries an inspiration to writer and artist alike.

The first two disks in this set cover the Thames from its source to the top of the tideway at Teddington Lock. We explore the delights of its upper reaches in a journey commencing at the river’s official head of navigation, Lechlade in Gloucestershire, and continue all the way down to the top of the tideway at Teddington, passing through Oxford, Henley, Wallingford, Abingdon, Marlow, Maidenhead and Teddington. These programmes were released in 2010 (Run Length 80 & 65 mins)

The third disk is The Tidal Thames, released in 2011. We make the challenging journey from Teddington lock to the Thames Barrier at Woolwich. The programme is full of advice for narrowboaters and navigational hints for those who may find themselves out on the tideway for the first time. There can be no more spectular and rewarding way to see our wonderful capital city than from your own narrowboat on the Thames. Our four camera coverage really gives you the feeling that you’re there, experiencing it with us and sharing the excitement of a trip that puts us close to the limit of what a narrowboat can safely do.
