Local Information

Located along the southern edge of the Cotswolds in the county of Gloucestershire one can find the town of Lechlade which is also known as the highest navigable spot along the River Thames. However though, the town itself was named after the River Leach which joins up with the River Thames at the edge of town.

Situated on an important interchange connecting the A417 and the A361, the town itself sees a lot of traffic on a daily basis and in the southern part of town you can find the Halfpenny Bridge which is used by the A361 to cross the banks of the River Thames.

While the River Thames still continues upwards to the head in which near Inglesham there is a spot in which a ship can navigate, the furthest upstream you could go from London up the River Thames is to the Halfpenny Bridge which is considered the usual starting point for any downstream journeys. Furthermore, the highest lock located on the River Thames can be found in Lechlade along with the statue of Old Father Thames.

The oldest building currently standing in Lechlade is a 15th century church whose spires can be seen near the Old Father Thames statue near the lock and at the point in which the River Leach and the River Thames come together.

If you are thinking about the possibility of a lazy weekend down the River Thames then chances are that you will need to make your way to Lechlade and start off at the Halfpenny Bridge. From there it is a long way downstream to London but depending on how much time you have, it is well worth the trip. You can also rent boats as well as tours of the River Thames that are offered in Lechlade so if you have a bit of love for a day or weekend on the water, you need to head over to Lechlade and get started off on the right foot for your journey.
