I walked from Old Oak Common to Ealing Broadway.
Old Oak Common is not accessible as a node yet but there are places of interest nearby (Wormwood scrubs Park, East Acton Tube, Hammersmith Hospial and Linford Christie Stadium, so the walk may be worth your while.
That said, it is a functional walk not a pleasant walk. Mostly through Park Royal Industrial Estate with a short canal section and a small park. So many food factories making wonderful smells, take a snack, you will get hungry. Step free and paved all the way make it easy for cycles or wheelchairs.

Perfectly navigable and accessible route, but not the most pleasant or direct route. I'm not sure that the canal section is nice enough to be worth the unpleasant walk through the industrial estate, so a more direct route would probably be better.

This was not a great walk. It's all right along the canal, but the part through the industrial/business estate was unpleasant. It's also not the most direct route.

For Old Oak Common please begin or end your walk outside the train depot. The Slow Ways network is future proofed and this Slow Ways node will be ready in 2026.
