Whiteways as greenways

Previous - Next

Spiritually uplifting greenways 

Whiteways are more spiritual than substantial. They tend to be dominated by great extent and by the sky's arc. In the country, this can be because they follow a ridge or run across a great plain. In the town, it is likely to come from size: wide streets fronted by great buildings. The Philosopher's Way, in Heidelberg , is white because it comands a view over the Neckar to the old town [Fig 4.26].
