If you would like to have a break for a picnic when walking between Staines and Laleham, one place to stop is the island by Penton Hook Lock. Just cross the lock at the top end, and follow the path behind the lock office to a bridge across a side stream to reach the island. One of the wildlife attractions is a fish ladder that allows migrating fish (salmon and eels for example) to bypass the lock and the weirs. Another feature for fish is the shallow streams where spawning can take place and tiddlers can escape the larger predators.
