Online talk: Tuesday 2 April, 8pm

Just over 100 years ago, the last of the huge old mansions on the northern side of Dulwich Village were demolished. This online illustrated talk by Ian McInnes will cover all five: The Hall, Menival/Fairfield, Lake House/Chinese Cottage, the White House/St Austins and Beech House/Warrigul along with their wealthy occupants, many of them influential Victorian entrepreneurs. 

Ian McInnes is a retired architect and is currently chair of the Dulwich Society Local History Group and Chair of the Twentieth Century Society. As well as giving talks and leading walks in the area, he researches and writes articles on a wide range of local history subjects. Tickets are £5, available via Bell House.
