Not a bad route, but as pointed out by the other reviewers it is badly drawn at Northwick Park hospital and you have to work out the detour. For that reason I don't think this route is really good enough to be verified.

I agree with Jeff (first reviewer) that it may be better to follow the Capital Ring Link and Capital Ring between Harrow and South Kenton station. I'm planning to go back and check this route idea and will put up an improved Harwem in the next few weeks.

A suburban walk with lots of open space and nature to distract you.
I agree with Jeff1403 the SW corner behind Northwick park hospital is impassable and a slight detour is needed.
I walked from the bustling Wembley Central high-street to Harrow shopping centers with tree lined streets, Northwick Park, and Harrow School grounds on the way. Quite a pleasant walk , generally on good paths with the exception of a steep water worn track close to Harrow (soon to be repaired - Oct 21).

I’ve walked this route many times. It could be improved by exiting Harrow-on-the-Hill Station by the south exit and heading straight up towards the hill itself via the Capital Ring Link route. Then descend from the church to the school playing fields following the Capital Ring itself to South Kenton. Then follow route to Wembley as shown. There is one error in the route in that it is not possible to join the Capital Ring at the SW corner of Northwick Park Hospital from the path shown. Either continue to follow the hospital perimeter road or go about 50 metres south and join the CR where it crosses Watford Road.
