Other Walks


The intention is to add further day walks in due course which have a London.parks association  Two have been identified:

Boston Manor to Hammersmith. This is about 8 miles. The route begins at Boston Manor Station and will go through Boston Manor Park to join the Grand Union Canal. From Brentford it goes along the Thames Path to reach Chiswick House Gardens where there is an extensive circuit. Finally there is a short section of the Thames Path to reach Hammersmith Station. The route is established, a basic route description has been written and I have led it as an evening walk. The basic route description and a slideshow and now on line. I will need to walk the route again to add distances to the route description and to include a downloadable GPX file.

Osterley to Richmond. This walk is about 10 miles. The walk visits Osterley House before joining the Grand Union Canal to pass Hanwell Locks. At Brentford the walk passes through Syon Park and finishes at Richmond Station. The route through Richmond has yet to be decided.

The major parks in North London are well covered by the Capital Ring https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/walking/capital-ring

My colleagues in London LDWA have organised a 28 mile challenge walk called the Capital Challenge which takes place in April. The following link contains details of the event including a downloadable route description: https://www.ldwa.org.uk/London/M/760/capital-chal.html
