This impressively researched and beautifully photographed book provides great insight into the River Thames, from its source in Gloucestershire all the way to the sea. Rather than give a step-by-step description in the manner of other guidebooks, author Derry Brabbs alternates descriptive narrative with chapters dedicated to specific river-related topics, such as "Tributaries," "Locks," "Sports," and "Leisure," as well as a chapter on London's architectural evolution. The text also periodically deviates away from the riverbank to feature some of the historic towns and villages within reach of the Thames. Brabbs’ own photographs combine atmospheric landscape with architecture to create a timeless sense of history.
