The Thames Region covers the River Thames basin. The hydro-topographical
area surrounding the River Thames where precipitation falls and finds
a way into the Thames. The Thames flows for over 200 miles from Thames
Head Bridge in the Cotswolds to Shoeburyness in Essex. Following the course
of the Thames you pass through many picturesque villages, large towns
like Maidenhead, Oxford and Reading - not forgetting the historic centres
of Henley and Windsor.
The region is split
into three areas: West, North East and South East Areas.
Predominantly Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire
East Area: Predominantly Hertfordshire
East Area: Predominantly Surrey
Bream, pike and roach the dominant species in most flowing waters.
