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.

I walked this from Putney to Hammersmith, on a grey but warm afternoon. It had rained a little in the previous week.

Once you leave aside the busy high street of Putney, and make it to the river (photo #1, #2) it is a really lovely walk. I think this is one of the better sections of the Thames Path in London, and I have walked this section on many more occasions. There is plenty to see (photo #3) on the river, and lots of coffee shops — even in the week leading up to Christmas.

Crossing Hammersmith bridge is easy, but you do need to walk on the left side. You will get told of if you try to go against the traffic. I hope they fix up the bridge but leave it for walking and cycling only. On the north side (photo #4), from the river to Hammersmith station you notice how annoyingly polluting traffic is.

A really enjoyable walk from Putney, along the river Thames and across Hammersmith bridge. Lovely views out across the river. The path is wide, and the route is an especially good one for birders as you can often spot birds visiting the nearby London Wetland Centre.

Very enjoyable, direct and safe walk which I started in Putney. The shock of the High Street soon gives way to a thoroughly peaceful walkway along the south bank of the Thames past places made most famous by the annual Oxbridge Boat Race. There is an option to excurt into the Wetlands Centre, but on the day we walked it, my group didn't. Hammersmith Bridge gave lovely views west as we crossed. The route into Hammersmith is direct under the iconic Westway and on a roundabout near the meeting point you get to see the Rik Mayall bench, as made famous in Bottom. The walk into the sea of traffic which is Hammersmith is a short shock but crossing is well managed and the upside is a plethora of refreshment and travel options.

Beautiful walk from Putney, along the Thames and across Hammersmith bridge. The path along the river gives you lovely views of London on both sides, and the path is very wide for the many people who use it for walking and cycling. It's a great, relaxing atmosphere in general.

This is a fantastic Slow Ways route!

Putney High Street is a good one for food and shops, and the last approach to Hammersmith is car-y but very short. Otherwise, you spend several miles along the gorgeous Thames riverfront, an incredibly special and beautiful space in the city.

I'd walk this route every day if I could. Full marks.

Agree withe comments of the previous reviewer once you have made it from Hammersmith Broadway and there are a couple of ways to get to the river, then the bridge is now reduced to one way down the paths either side of the roadway. Work is starting on the bridge but it is not due to close, access could change.
The river side path is good, though would be bumpy for a wheelchair. Plenty to see and busy around the rowing clubs. Putney High Street suffers from exhaust pollution and it is a gentle climb up to the station.

Now that Hammersmith Bridge is open for pedestrians again, time to walk and review this route.
It's direct and mostly traffic free which makes it a very pleasant walk. Hammersmith Bridge has pedestrian/cycle segregation, and a one-way system, so it's a really good low stress river crossing to use. As another plus, on the South side there was a very well positioned ice cream van with a friendly vendor when I went by.
Once at Hammersmith Bridge the route joins up with Chiput One (Chiswick - Putney).
A couple of downsides - parts of the riverside path may flood briefly at high tide; Putney High Street is always very congested and a pollution hotspot, I think it should be possible to find a route that avoids most of this for people (like me) who try to stay off high pollution roads.
The route is mostly accurately drawn, but it's a bit off around Hammersmith, please don't try walking down the central reservation of the A306! Keep to the pavement on the same side as St Paul's Church, or even better, walk through the church gardens to get away from the traffic.
