Nestled in 26 acres of South Dorset’s glorious countryside at Pallington Lakes near Dorchester lies Sculpture by the Lakes, an oasis for nature and art lovers alike created by renowned sculptor Simon Gudgeon. Simon’s vision was to create an environment for enthusiasts that blends nature’s beauty with inspiring works of art free from the constraints of enclosed spaces of a traditional gallery.
