Nunhead Beats The Bounds
Nunhead is not just a place it is a state of mind, a kingdom of the self, a people's paradise imagined by Blake, a citadel on the hill from which Turner sketched St Pauls. The long and illustrious history of this sceptred realm is etched into the collective memory. Its defence is their duty, their manifest destiny. So how to react to the impertinent encroachments of the Estate Agent fraternity, shamelessly incorporating portions of the ancient borough into genteel Dulwich and cocky upstart Peckham?
