Another canal trip, though this time it’s not strictly a canal – it’s the River Thames.
This is part of the ‘Thames Ring’ – a circular route around London using: Regent’s Canal, Grand Union Canal and the River Thames. The Thames is used to connect to the Regent’s Canal at LimeHouse and to the Grand Union Canal at Brentford. The entire route is 44 miles and has 25 locks.
I had already walked several section of the Thames part of the ring some years ago, especially the sections from Hampton Court to Kingston (in reverse), Kingston to Richmond (in reverse), Richmond to Kew (in reverse), Barnes to Hammersmith (in reverse), Hammersmith to Putney and Tower BRidge to Canary Wharf. A large section from Putney to Limehouse was missing, (as well as a smaller section from Kew to Barnes) so I decided to tackle address this by undertaking a few walks, the first being from Putney to Westminster.
