Description

Updated route between Stanwell Moor and Hounslow which makes use of a green chain of paths following the Duke of Northumberland's River past Heathrow airport.
There is a fair amount of pavement walking as well as the off road paths, but the route is direct and passes close to Heathrow Terminal 4 (which is the only Heathrow terminal with pedestrian access).
There is a spectacular plane watching point across fields south of Hatton Cross.

Crossing the A30 dual carriageway requires patience, but is very doable. There's a break in the central reservation to allow for crossing one side at a time. The nearest traffic lights are to the south at the junction with Stanwell Road

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.

I walked Stahou One 6 months ago and found it unsatisfactory, so I made this route as an alternative which I find much more pleasant.

From Hounslow head south-west on the Staines Road. The road is long and straight, and it’s not bad to walk along, an urban road with shops and pubs and local traffic. I passed the entrance to Hounslow Heath, but the route doesn’t detour across the heath, it would be quite a swerve to accommodate.

Eventually I reached the junction with the A312 Faggs Road, where I turned right and crossed over the Duke of Northumberland’s river, then left onto a footpath. Now began a lovely run of footpaths which (with a short break) goes all the way past Heathrow to Stanwell.

Every now and again a road has to be crossed, mostly this isn’t a problem, but crossing the A30 was more of a challenge. After a little patient wait there was a break in the traffic and I was able to cross safely. (Photo)

At another point the path came out on the roadside up a steep bank (photo) and through a very narrow gap in a hedge (photo).

The route stays on the north side of the DofN’s river past Heathrow T4. It’s a slightly bland, grassed area which has been heavily landscaped, but it doesn’t put the local wildlife off, and I saw a swan and heron on this part of the walk.
Then the route switches to a more rustic path that runs between the DofN’s river and the Longford river. The grass here is not mown, but the path is reasonably clear.

Eventually the route turns away from the two rivers and heads for Stanwell, where there is a classic church and village green, with pub. Stanwell Moor is a bit further on. By the time I reached the endpoint (another pub), I had walked all the way past Heathrow, and was ready to take the next step: to cross the M25 and leave London behind.

I can certainly recommend this route for Slow Ways. It’s probably the Slow Way to choose if walking to Heathrow, from T4 the other terminals can be accessed by free transport.

There are some steps, a short steep section of path, and grassy path walking; otherwise pavement and well surfaced footpath/shared cycleway.
