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.

Overall:

a very flat route, pleasant with a lot of green/off-road. Potential for awkward mud on parts of Molesey Heath which could affect wheeled users, but there's a simple pavement alternative that runs just outside the heath on the west and north sides.


In more detail:

From Walton the route is unavoidably largely paved, but quickly gets off main roads. At the start of Fieldcommon Lane there is a pavement running behind hedges on the left which is safer than walking in the road.

Care is needed on Molesey Heath to choose the correct path in a few places - I've tried to indicate the 'right' path in my photos. But keep heading north and east and you'll inevitably get to the desired footbridge exit closest to Hampton. If the Island Barn Reservoir Sailing Club is open I recommend a short south diversion to the reservoir. Climb the steps up to the north side of the reservoir for unparalleled views south to Sandown Park and around.

Shortly after leaving Molesey Heath you come to The Bell pub, steeped in history and recommended for food and drink. Hampton Bridge area has refreshment stop options there are free loos and shelter at Hampton Court railway station (no ticket needed).

Lovely views of the Thames and Hampton Court here, then into Bushy Park for an easy couple of miles east to Kingston. The path there is firm enough that mud isn't normally an issue. Over Kingston Bridge to the rail station. You pass the Bentall Centre on your left which again has free public loos.
