The Wordsworths

"Though [William] Wordsworth is in some sense the founding father (and therefore Dorothy the aunt) of a modern taste that has done much to shape the more pleasant parts of our world and the imaginations of those in it. he himself was heir to a long tradition, and so it is more accurate to see him as a transformer, a fulcrum, a catalyst for the historyof walkingin the landscape." -Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust

William and Dorothy Wordsworth are significant figures in the Romantic movement and instigated the idea of walking for pleasure in Britain.
