A wander in nature does wonders for the mind. Two hours outside is all it takes to lower blood prressure, release happy chemicals, and sharpen the senses. You don’t even need to go that far to feel the difference. So after being cooped up inside for over a year, we’re on a mission to provide #Outspiration for the nation. Keep an eye on our social channels for more.
Nature has been our greatest source of inspiration for centuries.
Physicist | Isaac Newton | 1687 | Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire
A young Isaac Newton discovered gravity whilst sat under the shade of an apple tree in his family’s garden. As Legend has it, he was in a contemplative mood when an apple fell straight down to the ground and sparked his imagination.
Novelist | Emily Bronte | 1847 | Haworth, Yorkshire
The bleak Yorkshire moors and the brooding homes built on them inspired Emily Brontë’s gothic masterpiece Wuthering Heights. She spent most of her life around the extreme moorland landscape that inspired her passionate characters.
Scientist | Charles Darwin | 1859 | Orpington, Kent
Charles Darwin had to escape the pressures of London before he could distil his theories on evolution and write, On the Origin of Species. In the more serene setting of Orpington, he was able to take walks through his garden and piece his findings together.
Writer/ Artist | Beatrix Potter | 1893 | Dunkeld, Perthshire
Beatrix Potter studied nature throughout her life with countless trips across the British countryside. It was at Dunkeld in Scotland where after running out of things to write in a letter, she first wrote a story about "four little rabbits whose names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter."
Composer | Edward Elgar | 1901 | Malvern, Worcestershire
The sights and sounds of the Worcestershire countryside fuelled Edward Elgar’s music. His most famous composition Land of Hope and Glory was inspired by the breath-taking view of the Malvern Hills and Severn Valley from his bedroom.
Engineer | Maurice Wilks | 1947 | Anglesey, North Wales
Maurice Wilks first sketched the shape of the original Land Rover in the stunning sands of Red Wharf Bay, on the isle of Anglesey in North Wales in 1947. Little did he know that he’d created an icon.
Sculptor | Barbara Hepworth | 1949 | St. Ives, Cornwall
Barbara Hepworth was a firm believer that “no sculpture really lives until it goes back to the landscape, the trees, air and clouds.” From the moment she moved to St. Ives in 1949, she worked in open air and filled her sculptures with aspects of nature.
