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.

Direct route which is generally away from main roads. There is one footbridge over the railway at Hounslow but this can be avoided by using Maswell Park Road rather than Ivy Road and cross the railway on the Whitton Road.

** Heads up that this route is not open all hours **
This is an excellent route: direct, takes advantage of some well placed footpaths, and passes close to Hounslow station for added connectivity. Some refreshment opportunity too. I enjoyed my walk and highly recommend it.

There is one quite big snag, which is that the wonderful path at Twickenham Rough is gated, it closes every night, and also closes daytime on some stadium event days, e.g. big rugby matches. Sadly this route isn't going to work on those days, or early mornings/late evenings.
For this reason I'm giving 4 stars rather than 5.

There are also one or two other unlit paths, e.g. along the Duke of Northumberland's river, which may not appeal to after-dark urban walkers. Would be good to have an alternative route which is safe and well lit 24/7 - although it might not be quite so nice as a daytime walk!

The route line has a random unsafe road crossing at Twickenham station, take care to cross at a safe crossing point.

Accessibility: There are two bridges with steps, otherwise paths are good, and apart from the crossing at Twickenham station, all other road crossings are safe.
