An 8.5 mile walk along the most picturesque stretch of the Thames in West London.
Starting at Putney Bridge we pass boathouses (start of the boat-race) and the Barnes Wetland Centre. We cross the river at Hammersmith past the pubs and Georgian houses of Hammersmith and Chiswick Malls. We cross back to the south bank at Barnes where the river takes on a more rural feel as we pass Dukes Meadows, Kew Gardens and Syon Park. The walk finishes in Buccleuch Gardens near Richmond Bridge where soft drinks will be provided by Richmond and Kingston PSC.
The walk is along (mostly) well surfaced paths and is well served by public transport for those not wanting to do the whole walk.
You can also sponsor a few of those who have already signed up to take part:
