I haven't posted anything for a while. I've been busy most weekends and busy at work too. But I have completed a lot of local walks that I didn't feel worthy of inclusion on here. The Thames has lots of options for both circular and linear walks, near to where I live, and I decided this one would be good to post. It makes use of the E3 bus for a linear walk connecting home with Gunnersbury Park and Chiswick.

 

The end of the E3 bus route at Edensor Road is a short walk from Chiswick Pier/Corney Reach where this walk starts.

It might not have been the best day for a walk, but it did ensure few people were on the Thames Path.

Crossing the railway next to the Brentford Community Stadium. Despite the location it is a lovely place to go and watch some.....rugby.

After crossing the busy A4, I entered Gunnersbury Park. There are lots of options you can take here.

I chose to head up to the top corner, by the small pond. The park exit here is very close to the E3 bus stop to get me home again.
