Walking by water

Waiting to change trains at Clapham Junction on a crisp and beautiful day ... watching the flickering shadows as the invisible people move along the platform -


Wednesday, 30 November 2016
Start time: 10:25
Easy 7.5 miles / 12.1 km
Group South Bank
A flat waterways walk following the Thames Path to Kew and Richmond Lock, crossing the Thames to have lunch at Isleworth - pub/picnic. Then the route is along the Capital Ring through Syon Park and the Grand Union Canal to finish at Boston Manor.
Along the path and through the leaves

Lots of rowers out on the water

Glimpse into Kew Gardens

Obelisk in the Old Deer Park marks the Kew meridian, at one time
used to officially set time (later taken over by Greenwich)

Photo-op for a glimpse of Isleworth

Crossing the river at Richmond Lock

In old Isleworth, "a small town of Saxon origin"

The sundial at All Saints Church was restored in 2013

Looking over the fence at Syon House

Interesting structure along the Grand Union Canal, part of Brentford Boatyard?

Lux, calme, et volupté

Heading home
