A short stretch of the Thames Path just upstream of Cricklade is to be closed from Monday 24 September for about four weeks. This is to allow for the laying of electricity cables.
The diversion is on the Wiltshire-Gloucestershire boundary at the far west end of North Meadow where the Latten-Swindon canal used to cross the river,
The temporary route from here is right (north) up the line of the old canal and then left (west) into Cerney Wick. At the tiny village go left and left, passing the Crown pub, along the lane on the signposted route taking you south-west to a bridge over the former railway line in the Cotswold Water Park. Here go left on the old line and rejoin the Thames Path ahead as it turns off (your right) from the wide way.
