Rainbow Bridge
Rainbow Bridge
This footbridge takes the Thames Path and also Shakespeare's Way from the west bank of the river to an island, effectively following the east bank of the main stream. It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its shape. It was erected in 1865 and refurbished in 1997. In the foreground is Medley Boatyard slipway.
Shakespeare's Way

Shakespeare's Way is a 146 mile long distance footpath from Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon to the Globe theatre in London. It follows as nearly as possible a route that Shakespeare may have taken between the two, but using footpaths, quiet lanes and towpaths, rather than his tracks, which are today's main roads.
