I've just been watching Ray Mears canoeing on the upper reaches of the Thames and thought what a good idea it would be to do it in a Sib. Question is, can you just camp anywhere on the banks in the country or do you have to stick to camp sites. Has anyone done this? Any tips?
You can get almost as far as Cricklade up stream in a SIB Lechlade to Inglesham is straightforward. Then at Inglesham you have a right bend and it gets narrow for about 75 yards but opens up again.
If you fancy a beer along the way you can moor up in the beer garden at the Red Lion at Castle Eaton and the campsite "Second Chance" is ten mins up the river from here.
It's a nice site with the river going through it
But if your wild camping there are loads of little places you can spend the night without being noticed from Inglesham up
