Follow the Thames from its meeting with the Kennet at Horseshoe Bridge up to Kings Meadow and reflect on the vivid imagery in Ian House’s poem ‘Masterstroke’ reproduced in individual phrases along the riverside in Sally Castle’s evocative hand-lettering. Fit the phrases into the context of the whole poem using the postcard guide to help and see the river in a whole new light.
The walk starts at Horseshoe Bridge where the Thames meets the Kennet, just east of Tesco. You walk at your own pace, whenever you like between Saturday 9 September – Sunday 17 September. It is completely FREE.
