Corporation Island, dripping with willows, is within a stone's throw of Richmond Bridge.

Undeniably large, but seemingly rather dull, Isleworth Ait has something unexpected to offer. Owned by the London Wildlife Trust, it is home to the two-lipped door snail and German hairy snail as well as kingfishers and herons. We would never have known as we wandered by.

|The channel splitting Brentford Ait is known as Hog Hole|
Kew Bridge signalled the end of our amble. We could see Oliver's Island clearly from the bridge, shaped like a single fantastic tree.
