Lechlade-on-Thames Lechlade marks the highest point of navigation on the River Thames. Once an important transfer point for goods arriving in Bristol and destined for London, pleasure boats have replaced freight. Water based activities and local tourism now dominate the economy, but Lechlade manages to retain a casual, family appeal. A morning spent exploring the streets and shops of the town, a riverside lunch, a graceful stone bridge, a stroll among docile cattle grazing along the banks of the river, swans and swan-shaped peddle boats reflected in the water, narrow boats moored along the banks, a church spire in the distance, and couples lounging in sun created an idyllic tableau and an extremely pleasant day.
