As stated by others there is the problem of the low bridge. So there is a better route to use. However if like me you do want to see the low bridge for yourself then it is a nice route, though noisy due to the M25 on this section. I walked from Iver to Uxbridge. As opposed to crawling under the bridge I continued left along bridal way to slough road which you can follow to Uxbridge and re join the stated route. But it is a busy road. So the alternative route is far better.

WARNING: There is a passage under the M25 that is only 82cm high and I had to crawl 30m on hands and knees on hard concrete to get through. It is an official, mapped, and signposted path and it can be done. If you feel you can't do this then do not take this path.
I walked from Iver to Uxbridge.
The path runs down by The Swan past a nursery and along Beeches Way where I saw deer in the fields.
Past some houses the path turns alongside the M25, very pretty but quite noisy. The path splits, I took the footpath which was steep down the bank, but you can take the bridleway also. The Colne Brook ducks under the M25 and the path does too, as described above the tunnel is very low and you will have to crawl. It does get taller on the East side, enough to crouch and walk. Up the other side there is a lovely riverside walk along a root-strewn path, across a road, then between the river and gardens to the General Elliott pub. After a small park there is a busy road then Uxbridge Town.
A beautiful walk but not without challenge.
I will post an alternative route for those who want to do the whole walk upright.

Lovely walk, with the exception of 30 metres where the footpath ceases to exist and it forces you to crawl under an M25 overpass. Not really recommended if you're a tall person (>1.75m). Great views of the Chilterns after that!.
