The Thames Path National Trail is a national trail footpath running 180 miles alongside the banks of the Thames. The source of the river is in Kemble, Gloucestershire. From here to the East, the Thames Path passes Runnymede, where Magna Carta was sealed in 1215, and continues to the Woolwich Estuary in London. It therefore joins the Jubilee Walkway at Lambeth Bridge, continuing to the Tower of London, while the Jubilee Greenway follows it as far as the Woolwich Ferry. The Thames has played a significant part in Windsor’s history, proving to be a useful transport artery in the days before steam and rail travel. Windsor would not have its name without the Thames, for the name derives from its Saxon spelling, Windlesora: meaning, windlass (or winch) on the river bank.
