Wallace says in "My Life" "Towards the autumn we had a much longer excursion, partly by coach and partly by canal boat, to a very picturesque country with wooded hills and limestone cliffs, rural villages, and an isolated hill, from the top of which we had a very fine and extensive view. I think it must have been in Derbyshire, near Wirksworth, as there is a long canal tunnel on the way there." Copyright The A. R. Wallace Memorial fund.Photo: Pencil sketch of ? by A. R.
