Sandwalk Wood- Charles Darwin.
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
In 1846, Darwin rented from Sir John William Lubbock a narrow strip of land of 1.5 acres adjoining his home,me the Down House grounds to the southwest, and had it planted. He named it the Sandwalk Wood. One side was shaded by an old shaw with oak trees, and the other looked over a hedge to a charming valley. Darwin had a variety of trees planted, and ordered a gravel path known as the "sandwalk" to be created around the perimeter. Darwin's daily walk of several circuits of this path served both for exercise and for uninterrupted thinking.
