The Lutyens Trust is a vibrant community of more than 600 members who  – apart from the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping to save Lutyens works – receive a topical newsletter (3 times a year) and access to an exclusive activities program that includes a study week held each June at Goddards as well as visits to private houses not open to the public. The library at Goddards is also open to members where you can consult our extensive reference library.
