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.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

**Update** Hammersmith Bridge is now OPEN to pedestrians, so this route is very much back in play.

This is a route with plenty of riverside paths (parts of which may flood at high tide), refreshment opportunities, and points of interest. At the midway point it passes close to Hammersmith Broadway, which has good transport links. So all in all very pleasant.

There is scope for a more direct route, and there's a couple of points where it encounters heavy traffic - the Great West Road, and Putney High Street (a notorious pollution blackspot) - which could I think be reduced if not completely avoided. For these reasons, along with the potential for minor high tide flood disruption, I'm giving 4 stars rather than 5.

The route passes a side entry to Chiswick House gardens, and also Hogarth's House, so for anyone looking to do a bit of sightseeing on the way this was an unexpected bonus. It also passes Fullers brewery and some excellent pubs along the river.
The highlight is undoubtedly crossing the river Thames on Hammersmith Bridge - an elderly marvel which can no longer support motor vehicles. Wonderful views across the river.
This stretch of the Thames is famous for the annual Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race and you can expect to see (and hear) plenty of trainee rowing activity on the way into Putney.

There's no flights of stairs and overall the route is fairly flat and on good paths, even along the river.

This route isn’t possible until Hammersmith Bridge is fixed.

This route goes over Hammersmith Bridge. But, Hammersmith Bridge is closed, and will be for years. An alternative, coming from Chiswick, is just to carry on on the same side of the river until you reach Putney Bridge. If coming from Putney, carry on past Hammersmith Bridge and cross at Barnes Bridge.

Hammersmith bridge is closed at the moment so you’ve got to continue to Putney Bridge to cross the Thames. It appears unlikely that Hammersmith bridge will be open any time soon. Other than that it’s quite a nice flat route.
