Darwin’s Old House
This year marks a bicentenary of Darwin, whose idea has a great influence throughout the world, to memorize him, the English government has nominated Darwin’s old house be the world legacy at the end of January this year. If this is approved, not only the Darwin’s old house itself but also the forest, fields and ponds nearby will be the world legacy, just like the Pyramid and the Stonehenge, to be well-protected.
Darwin’s old house(we can simply call it “Down House”) located in the state of Kent, where Darwin wrote his world-known book, 《The origin of Species》. He often collects some rural orchid near the river bank which was not far from his house and brings them back to the greenhouse for the further nurture experiment work. Besides that, he also drew pictures of the plants which grow in mud and palatable for insects(备用句：And the plants which grow in mud and palatable for insects also become his drawing models), It is the kent’s ponds where Darwin observe the seeds to sprout and grow; It is his image which casts all over the place.
Darwin’s grand grand son indicated that list Down House as the world legacy will help it get rid of the negative impact of urbanization which becomes more and more rapidly. Though when Darwin chose to live here, it was rathar a remote place, as for now it turns to be a quite prosperous small city. If autherized to be the world legacy, this place will draw more attention and care.
