Dulwich in May & June 2011

The London Villages Group visited leafy Dulwich in May and June, and discovered that despite being south of the Thames it is surprisingly easy to get to, and some members will doubtless return to spend time in the Picture Gallery.  We admired the Georgian architecture, learnt the history of Dulwich College and had an excellent lunch in the Pavilion café in the park.   The highlight for many was seeing Ernest Shackleton’s boat, the James Caird, and hearing the story of his incredible journey trying and failing to reach the South Pole.  On the first trip two of our members spontaneously created their own work of art, “The Three Barbaras (Hepworth, Raines and Hewitt).  That must be a first for LALG!
