Visiting Down House this winter, I wanted to walk his famous sandwalk. I naively imagined that while doing so I would have some amazing new insight or perhaps just come to a new appreciation of my chosen vocation. I imagined walking along just as Darwin did, thinking the same things he thought. But when I got there and started to walk, I began to feel angst as to just how I should be walking it. I wanted to walk it the same way as Darwin but how did he walk it?
