What we do

Britain’s architectural heritage is one of the nation’s greatest assets and Sir Edwin Lutyens OM gave us some of our most beautiful country houses, public buildings and war memorials. Lutyens was also prolific abroad and designed Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi, Thiepval Arch on the Somme, the British Embassy in Washington DC and many other distinguished buildings.

The Lutyens Trust is a charity dedicated to preserving and promoting the spirit and substance of Lutyens heritage. Our intervention and influence has helped protect many Lutyens buildings from harm. We are developing the first comprehensive on-line Gazetteer of Lutyens works which will soon be made accessible to the public. We arrange for our members tours of private houses as well as an annual study week at our own Lutyens house, Goddards in Surrey.  There is much to be done so please consider joining us to support this ongoing work.
