Capital Ring – Section 8: Osterley Lock to Greenford

Capital Ring – Section 8: Osterley Lock to Greenford

This is another really pleasant section of the Capital Ring walk that loops around London. This part is just under 9km long, from Osterley Lock (near Boston Manor station) to Greenford. This part is not very difficult, although it can get a little muddy in a few places. Most of this walk follows the meandering path along the banks of the River Brent, so this is one section where I don’t think it is possible to get lost. Osterley Lock…

Capital Ring – Section 7: Richmond Bridge to Osterley Lock

Capital Ring – Section 7: Richmond Bridge to Osterley Lock

This part of the Capital Ring meanders from Richmond Bridge to Osterley Lock, mostly along the Thames and the Union Canal. I loved this section of the capital ring, mostly because so much of it was completely new to me! It is a really nice area to wander around that I didn’t know anything about! We walked along here on a miserable grey day, and it was still lovely, so it must be GORGEOUS when the weather is more pleasant. TFL…

Capital Ring – Section 6: Wimbledon Park to Richmond Bridge

Capital Ring – Section 6: Wimbledon Park to Richmond Bridge

This is probably the most famous section of the Capital ring starting in Wimbledon and walking over to Richmond. The route is almost entirely within gorgeous parks with lovely views of greenery, deers and the boats on the river Thames. I’ve walked along this route previously (although I did not know it was part of the capital ring…) and I noticed that we saw far more walkers than the other sections!! This walk is 7 miles (11.3km) long, so it…

Capital Ring – Section 5: Streatham to Wimbledon Park

Capital Ring – Section 5: Streatham to Wimbledon Park

This is another section of the 126km walk around London. This part starts in Streatham and heads North through Wandsworth to Wimbledon Park. I thought this section was pleasant (if a teeny bit boring…) as it winds its way through quite posh residential streets and parks. We had to wait for ages on a freezing platform waiting for a train to get to Streatham Common. So try to plan your route if you’re walking on Sundays, as you might have…
