Darwin s thinking path
The Sandwalk was created in 1846 when a 0.6ha area of land was fenced off and planted out with native trees and a circular path dressed with sandy gravel around the edge. Darwin would each day and walk a number of times around the sand-walk counting the laps with flints piled at the beginning of the circuit.
The greenhouses where Darwin studied plant growth, pollination and variation have been restored.
