Intend coming on this interesting walk through west London which should be relatively mud free. Lots of drop off points for local buses and tube stations for anyone with stamina issues.

It was a beautiful easy walk in glorious sunshine with very little mud. Rare birds at the Bunny Park, Brunel's engineering masterpieces at the Viaduct and Three Bridges followed by an inspired Italian chef at the Plough lunchtime stop.

I’m writing a recommendation to Trip Adviser as we were looked after so well by the Landlord Derek O’Brien and his chef Donato. Even the kitchen porter is Italian and produced a masterpiece of Sea Bass in spicy grilled vegetables. Only 5 on the walk but a fab relaxing day.
