After completing the Ealing branch of the District line I head back to Turnham Green to do the Richmond branch.
Turnham Green to Gunnersbury
I walk down Goldhawk Road and onto Chiswick High Road passing many shops.
After passing a war memmorial I see a very oddly coloured house on Heathfield Terrace.
On Harvard Road I see a Greek Orthodox Church with a very bright dome. You need to be observant to find Gunnersbury tube station from here. There is a very small alley that leads to it. The main entrance must be on Chiswick High Road. I pass along the alley and reach the station.
Gunnersbury to Kew Gardens
I head towards Kew Bridge passing a number of shops. When I cross the bridge it looks like it is low tide.
There are a number of boats moored at the Kew Gardens Pier.
This is a very leafy area best known for Kew Gardens itself. The Gardens can’t be seen from my vantage point due to this large wall surrounding them.
In a small shopping area I find Kew Gardens tube station.
Kew Gardens to Richmond
I walk south along Sandycombe Road which is a residential street.
I then turn right into Lower Mortlake Road and head towards Richmond.
Here is Richmond station the final stop on this branch of the District line.
