The The River Thames Summary

The The River Thames by Derry Brabbs

This impressively researched and beautiful photographed book by Derry Brabbs presents a detailed insight into Britain's grandest, most varied and most important river. The journey downriver from the source to the sea is intercut with thematic chapters on tr ibutaries, locks and boating, and periodically deviates away from the riverbank to feature some of the historic towns and villages within reach of the Thames, including Farringdon, Oxford, Wallingford, Windsor and Kew. Taken through the seasons and in all conditions, Brabbs' photographs often combine atmospheric landscape with architecture to create a timeless sense of history. This book will appeal to anyone exploring the Thames either on foot, by boat, or by car and will be treasured both by visitors and those who live by the river.
