The high flow of water has caused the riverside path at North Meadow outside Cricklade to be breached.
Indeed it is being described as the Thames “changing course”.
One can leave Cricklade on the official route but at West Mill one must now turn away from the river and follow West Mill Lane inland. Keep ahead on joining a more major road. Take the second right and soon go right again into Stones Lane. The leisure centre grounds are opposite. Some distance after a bend go right to follow the cycleway on the old railway line.
Having crossed the Thames you are on the Thames Path again.
