Wherever you live in London, the Elizabeth Line has opened up faster connections to new walking areas which capture the built and the green environments of London and the Thames Valley. The stations may be linked by walks through historic and modern streets, parkland, canal towpaths, and full-blown urban wilderness.
A walker covering the whole route will clock up about 150km, or a little more if detours are made to stations, bus stops or other points of interest.
Shenfield to Whitechapel (41.2km; 237m ascent)
Abbey Wood to Whitechapel (24.9km; 190m ascent)
Whitechapel to West Drayton (37.0km; 101m ascent)
West Drayton to Reading (49.3km; 137m ascent)
Since there is no longer any pedestrian access to the central area of Heathrow Airport, I have left the airport branch alone.
