This was a very straightforward Thames-side walk on a cool but very sunny day. We met at Kew Bridge station but then crossed the river to the south side and waited for Nigel, who had had to go to Kew Gardens station instead.
Reflecting the beautiful day, the path was crowded with cyclists and runners, but after Chiswick Bridge the very low tide meant we could get away from them by walking on the foreshore.
We stopped for lunch after Hammersmith bridge, and it was still only 1.30 when we got to Putney bridge — the whole walk of 5.6 miles plus lunch took two and a half hours. We would probably have carried on for another couple of miles, but the next stretches on both the south and north banks involved substantial stretches away from the river, so we all went home from Putney Bridge station.
