Lechlade is where the River Thames begins its working life, the Neptune-like statue of Old Father Thames casts a majestic eye over St. John's Lock, the highest navigable point of the great river. From here, the Cotswold stone quarried at nearby Taynton was shipped down river to London for the rebuilding of St Paul's Cathedral. The lock is still well used, but today's traffic is largely pleasure craft seeking the quieter reaches of the Thames. Small boats can be hired by the hour from Riverside Boatyard. The Campsite is just over the bridge and is set in 3.5 acres of level grassland with good access from the main road (A361). Ideal base for touring the Cotswolds and only 250 yards from the Thames Path and River Thames. Rallies Welcome.Open from:
