BBC: UK launches Darwin heritage bid

The laboratory where Charles Darwin developed his famous theory of evolution is to be the UK's 2009 nomination for a World Heritage Site.

Down House, in Bromley, south-east London, includes his home, experimental garden and surrounding land.

This is great news. Congratulations, well done, and good luck to all concerned.

Something tells me I'll be visiting Downe again some time this year. It has been far too long.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
