Peggy Angus first met Eric Ravilious in the early 1920s when both were students at The Royal College of Art. Other students included
Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, Edward Bawden, Barnett Freedman and Enid Marx. From 1933 onwards Angus rented a shepherd’s
cottage, Furlongs, near Beddingham at the foot of the South Downs, and made that a home to which a circle of artists of gathered. Ravilious
considered that his time at Furlongs: ‘…altered my whole outlook and way of painting, I think because the colour of the landscape was so
lovely and the design so beautifully obvious … that I simply had to abandon my tinted drawings.’
