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'm leaving a second (unfavourable) review, because despite being an excellent route in almost all respects, on reconsideration I don't think it should be included in the Slow Ways network, due to using a 'cut through' path by Queen Mary's hospital which isn't a right of way. So I'm flagging it.
Please use Ricput 2 which has been corrected, it's a gorgeous walk through Richmond Park, with some very interesting architecture on the way.

I loved walking this route between Richmond and Putney, it's got lots of off-road/greenery while staying reasonable direct, highlights include Richmond Park and East Sheen Common, very enjoyable.

Richmond and Putney centres are busy with crowded pavements, cafes and bars, and excellent transport links. There is a great range of architecture en-route, from large Victorian villas to post-war Modernist social housing. Toilets in Richmond Park, cafe near Roehampton Gate, and often an ice-cream van at Sheen Gate.

There is a potential after-hours gate closure at the cut-through by Roehampton hospital, although when I walked the route it was already after-hours, but the gate remained open and on a well-used cycle route. A detour around the hospital is possible in the event the gate is shut.

There are two steep hills at Roehampton (one up, one down) which may put off wheelers.

Richmond Park and East Sheen Common are leafy, green oases for the urban walker, but they are unlit. Intrepid Slow Wayers who don't mind the dark should note that Richmond Park does close to pedestrians after dark for around 2 months a year (usually November and February) when the deer cull is on. The rest of the year it is open 24/7.

I've lopped a star off because of the occasional risk of gate closure after hours. There is potential for an alternative all-road Ricput, which would be a little more direct, lit throughout, take in more intermediate stations and urban centres, and avoid the Roehampton hills.

I walked this route from Richmond to Putney and found it to be a very nice walk which would be suitable for all. Although there is some unpaved sections these are relatively smooth. The unpaved ground was dry and therefore unable to tell how mud the path would be if wet however there were no signs to rutting. Most of the way was very quiet in pleasant surrounds.
