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.

I started from Kingston on Kinkin two, so crossed the A3 at Robin Hood Gate using the traffic lights. Lovely woodland walk with a few muddy patches. Underpass at A3 to Putney Heath. Used GPS to navigate paths on Putney Heath otherwise I might have got lost. Turned right down St. John's Avenue off Putney Hill to get to East Putney Underground to finish (Rosy Lea tea shop opposite!).
Useful toilets at Robin Hood Gate (20 pence by card). Worth a slight detour to visit the First World War memorial on the edge of Wimbledon Common. Café at Putney Heath bus terminus.

I walked this route from Putney to Kingston Vale, it is mostly very pleasant and green. The first 10 minutes up Putney Hill on the A219 is not that pleasant, but there isn't really any sensible alternative and at least it's direct. At the top of the hill is Putney Heath, the Green Man pub, and a bus terminus with refreshment hut.
The route crosses Putney Heath and Wimbledon Common before arriving at Kingston Vale to connect with routes through Richmond Park to Richmond and Kingston. The route line is pretty accurate and easy to follow across the Heath, but take care to stay with it or you could end up off track a long way from where you want to be!
Mostly the path is good, potentially muddy in the winter months, there is one rough and tree rooty section which is a bit trickier to negotiate.
Accessibility: one bridge across the A3 at Kingston Vale. This can be bypassed quite easily.

All in all a good 4 star route.

Tempted to give 5 stars but this is my first review and wanted to leave scope for a greater accolade in future. I prefaced it with a walk across Richmond Park. To then have this one enveloped in the greenery of Wimbledon Common and Putney Heath was a great way to extend the trip. The last 10 minutes down Putney Hill to Putney Station was more frenetic but there's no way round that.

A very pleasant fairly direct walk. Traffic busy at start as I left Putney, up Putney Hill. Once on Putney Heath, there was little reason to feel you were in London. The path was suitable for able bodied persons but would be a little challenging in a couple places for wheeled equipment. However say this there were alternative ways which I did not investigate which may be a by-pass for these areas. There were no stairs along the way (except the footbridge over the A3 at the Kingston Vale end but there were pedestrian lights as an alternative to cross the road nearby), just a reasonable steep down hill section with tree roots.
