Summary: The Thames and Severn Way is a waymarked canalside route designed by the Cotswold Canal Trust, following where possible the canals between Upper Framilode and Lechlade on Thames, passing through Stonehouse, Stroud, Brimscombe, the Golden Valley, Siddington, South Cerney, Cricklade and passing over the route of the Sapperton Canal Tunnel. The Way has been marked out by volunteers from the Cotswold Canals Trust. Parts of these canals have been restored and work is continuing. Cotswold Canals is the title given to two connected Gloucestershire waterways, The Stroudwater Navigation and The Thames and Severn Canal. The thirty six mile long waterway links England’s two great rivers, The Severn and Thames. The Stroudwater Navigation runs from the Severn and at Wallbridge in Stroud meets the Thames and Severn Canal that continued to Lechlade. The route of the Way aims to follow the line of the canals but where necessary uses other nearby paths including the Thames Path. Its route is the same as the Cotswold Canals Walk (an earlier promoted route covered on this website) apart from the final section from Latton to Lechlade where the Way first follows the line of the Thames, to finally leave it to pass south of the Cotswold Waterpark to reach Lechlade.
