The Sandwalk, Charles Darwin's 'Thinking Path', is located beyond the walled vegetable garden along the edges of his property. It is here that Darwin walked and thought every single day until the final weeks of his life. In this place he planted hazel, alder, lime, hornbeam, birch, privet, dogwood and holly, all encircled by a sandy path.
The Tarr Steps, a medieval clapper bridge dating back to 1000 BC, spanned the River Barle in the Exmoor National Park, Somerset, England, until Dec. 2012 when half the bridge was washed away by heavy floods. It has since been rebuilt.
