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.

Walked Twickenham to Sunbury.
I know most of this route well, especially the river Crane part; and also the Sunbury end for access to the occasionally open Kempton Steam Museum. It’s probably the best route for this Slow Way.

The route goes through mostly green spaces and some residential streets, until the final mile or so approaching Sunbury, where it is accompanied by the A316 ‘Country Way’ (a joke surely?), a dual carriageway which is the main feeder for the M3, which starts at Sunbury.

The first part of the walk is along the river Crane valley, then it skips over to Hanworth Park and eventually at Snakey Lane it meets up with the A316. Take care crossing the road here. There is a good footpath or side road for most of the final part of the route, very little is directly alongside the busy road.

There are a number of interesting features along this route - Kempton Steam Museum and the Waterworks Railway and a new fish pass going up at Mereway nature reserve caught my eye. The whole first half along the Crane is a fantastic example of how a continuous green route can provide excellent walking.

The route starts/finishes at Sunbury station. Because of the road situation (i.e. the M3 running through the middle) Sunbury has a large complex underpass arrangement for pedestrians; if you want refreshments or buses back towards Twickenham then turn right instead of left at the underpass.

There are refreshments at Kneller Gardens and at Hampton Road West (A312).

    Editing to add - the underpass at Sunbury - the orange concrete photo - was flooded when I went by yesterday. Access to the railway station and the unflooded part of the underpass was by crossing the A308 at street level - not ideal but possible with care.
