Lear House: Walking and the Built Land Settlement

Over 2 months I walked the settlement along its boundaries,  reading and rereading Walking , “to regard man (us) as an inhabitant, or a part and parcel of Nature, rather than a member of society”.  I knew this house and Nettle’s steps and with this- try to remember.
