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.

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

This route crosses Putney Bridge and takes the north side of the Thames to Hammersmith, so it's a bit longer than the alternative Chiput One.
Comparing the two I would say I preferred Chiput One (the other one), as it's slightly shorter and greener, there's less time in the polluted Putney Bridge/High Street area, and it crosses the river on the magnificent, and currently traffic free, Hammersmith Bridge

I walked Putney to Chiswick on a Monday in blustery but dry weather.
The route is reasonably accurately drawn, but in some places (e.g. skirting Fulham football ground, crossing the Great West Road) it's a wee bit 'off' which is annoying but not disastrous.

Putney High Street and Putney Bridge have heavy traffic and high levels of pollution. On the Fulham side the path follows the river all the way to Chiswick, apart from the detour around Fulham football ground. There are lots of different buildings to look at, and several pubs on the way.
If you want a sit down cafe rather than a pub at the half way point, then I can recommend Cafe Plum on Crisp Road, near Hammersmith Bridge, only a few metres off the route just behind Riverside Studios.
The path turns away from the river at Fullers brewery and crosses the Great West Road (underpass), then heads direct to Chiswick meeting point at Turnham Green station. To cross Chiswick High Road safely, you may need to walk away from the route line to find your crossing point.

Accessibilty:
The Thames path at Chiswick sometimes floods at high tide.
The park at Fulham closes at dusk.
It's a reasonably flat step free route, however, at the Chiswick end, Thornton Avenue has some narrow pinch points where trees grow on the pavements (photo).

I'm going to give 3 stars for this one, for me it wasn't as enjoyable as Chiput One, but it may suit other Slow Wayers better.
