Description

This route is more direct at the Canary Wharf end than the original published route. It allows for more off-road walking through the docklands and in the main avoids large amounts of main road. It leaves Canary Wharf Station and having gone a short distance along South Colonnade it turns to cross the footbridge to West India Quay. It passes many historic buildings and features on its route in this area including the Docklands Museum. It continues through Poplar, passing through the historic Poplar Recreation Ground to meet the Limehouse Cut canal. Walkers, especially those with children, should note that this stretch is a relatively narrow towpath with an unprotected drop to the water. The canal access on this route uses the steps at Balladier Walk instead of Morris Road on the original Slow Ways route, because they are far less steep and have decent hand rails. There is no alternative to the steps in this area for those who need level access. This section of the route can be muddy with lots of puddles especially after rain and good footwear is recommended. Following the canal eventually the towpath passes along a floating pontoon to the attractive Bow Locks area and Three Mills. It continues along the Three Mills Walled River to meet Stratford High Street. It continues along here a short distance before turning off and carrying on through the side streets of Stratford and a footbridge (ramped on both sides) to the station

Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.
