Osterley Park and Hanwell locks circular

6 mile circular walk from Osterley tube through Osterley Park, past historic Osterley House and Hanwell Locks on the Brentford arm of The Grand Union Canal.

Latecomers pickup point and break around[masked]pm is at The Fox Inn, Green Lane, Hanwell W7 2PJ which is near Ealing Hospital and about 10 minutes from Hanwell overground station.

We are ending up at The Hare and Hounds pub, Windmill Lane, Isleworth, Middlesex TW7 5PR which is about 15-20 minutes walk from Osterley tube. For those not wanting to go to the pub at the end I'll let you know when it's the end of the walk and point you in the direction of Osterley tube.

Anyone wanting to drop out and visit Osterley House and Gardens will need to pay to visit. A house and garden ticket is £10.25 per adult. The garden closes at 4pm and the house at 5pm.

The Stable Cafe closes early at 4pm. If you arrive early for the walk, you can make your way to this cafe inside Osterley Park to get your takeaway drinks here and use the toilets.  There are also some cafes near the station on Thornbury Road (before going into Osterley Park). The Stables cafe toilet stop will be the only one before we get to The Fox Inn around 2.30pm. I will stop here in any case for the group and we can pick you up if you've made your way there.

Car parking - There is a national trust car park at Osterley House, costs £4 and is open till 6pm. There might also be street parking available - you will need to check with Hounslow Council.

    A terrific walk, varied surfaces and many thanks to those who kept me company like Anni (lovely pictures by the way), Denis, Tania and the many kind souls who gave me several helping hands over the stile and in other places.
    The bluebell dell on the last lap was waiting to bloom, if only we had been there when the bluebells were out!
    Still, something to look forward to in future walks.
    Again great company! Thanks...

  • Tanya D

    Please update your RSVP if you are not coming for the walk as there are people on the waiting list.

    Waitlist - a lot of members drop out in the last 24 hours and if they are good, they will change their RSVP to 'no' so you can join. Please keep an eye on the site on Friday. I'm not going to add any more numbers to the group from 86 as that is already too big to manage and can put people off from coming. The reality is about half turn up usually.

    Fees - Please come prepared to pay £1 before the walk starts. This is a cheap walk, but not free. Those who haven't paid the £1 due to lateness/forgetfulness/cheekiness etc on a previous walk, please pay £2 if you are coming on this walk (even if you are late). Thanks.

    It's predicted to be partly sunny, partly rainy on Saturday so you may need to bring waterproofs or umbrellas just in case. Please update your RSVP if you can no longer make it. Thanks.
