On a surprisingly sunny day 24 members of the Discovering Wessex group visited Sculptures by the Lakes, on Friday October 15th. 

This 26 acre sculpture park is set in tranquil Dorset countryside just south of Dorchester, surrounded by beautiful lakes, rivers and streams.  Members were able to walk around freely and view 117, sometimes monumental, sculptures set in a natural environment rather than  in a museum or gallery.

Many also partook of snacks and drinks etc in the Café by the Lakes, where most of the ingredients were grown on site.  The general consensus was an very enjoyable day out.
