However, there was then a considerable hold up which for ten minutes was not obvious until we got to the western side of the central Hammersmith bus and underground area. Here a lorry and and a van had come together and were blocking two lanes and thus it took until 1615 before we could escape from the Hammersmith gyratory.
The bus then ran down to Hammersmith bridge which has a very rough surface and the tide was well out. From here we transited Barnes and on past Roehampton university and Queen Mary's hospital to finally turn right and left into Bessborough Road which was reached at 1644.

Almost immediately a No 265 bus arrived and I boarded this and after a circuit of some roads we went back down to the road we had come from on the No 72. Then the bus did an about turn before heading up to the A3 and then took this down to Shannon corner.
From here I caught at 152 to Merton Park and finally the tram to Wandle Park.
