£5.00

A green picturesque walk from Feltham to Twickenham through Hanworth Park and along the River Crane.

Explore and Enjoy London! Stay Fit! Get out and about with Ken's Events and see new parts of London and its surrounds in the company of great friends.

The Crane River is sourced from the Yeadon Brook and runs from Heathrow through Hayes, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Feltham, Isleworth and Twickenham where it meets the River Thames. We are going to walk the final stage from Feltham to Twickenham). Our route also takes us through Leitrum Park and some picturesque sections of Crane Park, the site of the gunpowder mills which date back to 1766 and the Shot Tower (manufactured lead shot) which was built in 1823.

There were 55 explosions, some fatal, during the life of the gunpowder mills. Barrels of gunpowder were taken from Crane Park by road to Isleworth Wharf where they were loaded on barges and transported to London and beyond. The factory mills closed in 1926.

START:Today's walk starts at Feltham Railway Station (trains from Waterloo and Wimbledon).
FINISH:At a pub near Twickenham Station.
DISTANCE: Approx 5.5 miles
DROPOUT POINTS: We pass near London bus routes.

This is a point to point walk starting at Feltham Train Station and towards the finish we will be passing Twickenham Railway Station, before concluding the walk at a very large pub in Twickenham. Make sure you bring some appropriate shoes as some of the paths may be muddy in places.

RAIN POLICY: Light rain will not prevent this event from taking place. However if there is heavy rain, walking in the heavy rain is no fun. Therefore we may reschedule this walk to another date, check back to this site on the morning of the event for the latest weather update. Final decision will be taken at 10:00am.

A £5 meetup organiser's contribution will be collected from attendees who do not hold the Ken's Events Membership Card.
