A long walk in surburbia passing through some surprisingly tranquil areas amidst the cityscape. The walk gives some unusual views of Heathrow. We visit the former Hounslow Heath airfield and a terrific pub. The walk ends in the picturesque suburb of Richmond.

bus routes from other origins also converge here. From Harlington Corner continue in a westerly direction until you reach Cranford. Turn right into Waye Avenue and then bear right at the fork. Surely the direction is easterly, towards London from Harlimgton Corner
