London-based walker and artist David Fathers has produced a beautifully illustrated guide to the Thames Path between Putney Bridge and the Thames Barrier, a 40-mile waterside walk tracing 2,000 years of the capital’s history. The pocket sized book is packed full of interesting detail, anecdotes and asides, from frost fairs and Victorian sewers to the history of the bridges and the building of The Shard. The walking route follows both banks and is traced across colourful sketch maps and delightful drawings, which also show public transport connections and steps, but it’s easy to follow and will appeal to ramblers and casual visitors alike.  Andrew McCloy
