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.

A really lovely walk along the Hogsmill river. The north bank at the start of the walk can be very muddy in winter. I would avoid the Ewell bypass coming into Tolworth by heading across the wonderful Tolworth Court Farm Fields.

Easy walking through parks and the banks of the river, part of the London loop. Good access and wide enough to share with cyclists. A lot of “alternative” paths so keep an eye out for the way-markers, but the river is the main guide.

A gorgeous walk alongside the Hogsmill River & following the 'London Loop'. To avoid much of the very busy Kingston Road between Tolworth and the Hogsmill, go into the Tolworth Court Fields and follow the path parallel with the road.
At Ewell, note that Bourne Hall Park is locked at dusk.

This was a beautiful walk! You follow the Hogsmill river for most of it, crossing it a couple of times, so it’s very easy to follow. It’s a little river, with lots of green space either side. Look out for dragonfly, kingfisher, heron (and they will be reintroducing water vole soon!)

The surfaces along this walk are a mix of pavement, packed earth, gravel and dirt. The path is shared with bikes. There are a few sections on the current route that would be unsuitable for wheels (prams, wheelchairs) - especially after the third (?) bridge. There were a lot of tree roots, and would be very muddy after rain (it’s been very dry). The good news is, you could continue on the right hand side without crossing and head into Ewell more directly.

One big issue: Just as you get into West Ewell, there is no designated place to cross to get into Bourne Hall Park, so there are raised curbs in front of that entrance, and watch out for cars going surprisingly fast. Bourne Hall Park also seems to close 30mins before sunset, so that part of the route will be inaccessible at times.

Overall, I really enjoyed this though, I’ve never ventured that way before!.
