Turner went to Nunhead

In keeping with Nunhead/Peckham’s artsy tradition, it now appears that Turner came to Nunhead and sketched a view of London from the site of the present cemetery

Distant View of London ?from Nunhead with the Dome of St Pauls and the Sun Breaking through Stormy Clouds  1796-7

Hat tip to Cllr Fiona Colley for this…and for asking about crossing measures outside Ivydale School.

I mean, how gorgeous is that. I think I have a photograph somewhere  of that very same view, over 200 years later…
