Route Narrative - Supporting Interest Information
This page provides an illustrated narrative with information about the main points of interest along the route as a free download. There is separate page covering Route Facilities.
A narrative describing the main points of interest (POIs) along and very near the event route is downloadable on the link below. This includes photographs. Take it with you on your recces or read it before the event to learn about the wealth of British history and heritage that you pass on the route, and of past figures that lived or worked in the places that you pass. The route includes views of London 2012 Olympic Games venues, passes the sites linked to the LDWA's Founders and ends with a view of Windsor Castle on HM The Queen's Diamond Jubilee weekend, and the narrative covers these and many other interest features along the route. The associated event Harvey Map includes a panel about the founding of the LDWA for its 40th Anniversary year in 2012.
This narrative is not a route description but rather provides interest information. The Route Description page provides the Route Descriptions for walking the route and finding the way.
The document may be downloaded in PDF format only on the link below - this file is about 2.4MB so may be slow to download on some internet connections:
If printing multipage or illustrated documents please consider using the booklet option in your printer driver if it offers one. Using this with A5 page sizes and double sided printing on A4 paper uses a quarter of the paper and ink of normal single sided printing. If you do not have a PDF reader they are available free online to download.
The narrative is a free and public document forming part of the London 2012 LDWA Inspire project and an LDWA legacy for 2012 in the LDWA's 40th Anniversary Year. The route will later be provided as a full Long Distance Path for public use.
