Heart-felt thanks to Dr John van Wyhe, FCD, who kindly showed Michael Barton, FCD and me around Charles Darwin's old room at Christ's College, Cambridge yesterday. Dr van Wyhe recently oversaw the refurbishment of the room, recreating how it would have looked in Darwin's day. The result is rather special—down to the basket for Darwin's dog!

And the really good news was that we were allowed to take photographs!

More on Darwin's college rooms here. My photos from Darwin's room below:
