TQ1168 : Rivermead Island from Thames Path


Rivermead Island is uninhabited and joined to the north bank by two footbridges and a ford. It’s open to the public for everyone to enjoy. Up until 1980 there an open air swimming pool on the island. The Sunbury Amateur Regatta, established in 1876, is held on the river here in August each year.
If you look carefully, you can see a man sitting in his deck chair on a beach, some people on a bench to his left and others having a picnic to his right.
