Goddards Study Day 2018

Wednesday, 13 June, 2018, 10:15am-4pm

Event address: Goddards, Abinger Lane, Abinger Common, Dorking, Surrey, RH5 6JH

The day will begin at Goddards at 10:30am with coffee, following this guest lecturers Candia Lutyens (Founder of Lutyens Furniture & Lighting and Granddaughter of Sir Edwin Lutyens), and Michael Edwards (architect and restorer of Lutyens buildings) will discuss specific elements of Lutyens’s interiors from tiles to lighting.

After a buffet lunch at Goddards, to be held at 12.30, members will be able to visit nearby Shere Museum, home to the mural designed by Max Gill, which was designed for Lutyens’s commission at Hazelhatch, Surrey. The Museum is opening especially for the Lutyens Trust by kind permission of their trustees, and the Gill mural is considered to be the highlight of their collection. They also have architectural models  of Shere village, and the Tillingbourne and the Manor House Lodge designed by Lutyens.

This will be followed by an excursion to study  interior design elements at a conveniently located Lutyens house.

Tickets are £55 per person.

How to get there

By train: the nearest station is Dorking or Dorking Deepdene. From there you can take the 32 Bus from Deepdene Avenue (Stop E) to Friday Street (24min). Taxis are available from Dorking Station.

By car: Turn south off the A25 at Wotton, into Hollow Lane, with a clear sign pointing you to “Leith Hill, Friday Street, Abinger Common”.  The lane is narrow, single-track in places, with steep banks.  After just over 1 mile you will reach a grassy triangle on the right with a well with a Horsham stone roof over the pump. The chimneys and red roofs of Goddards can be seen behind the well.  Indicate right into the sharp turning back but don’t actually turn into the lane – the entrance to the car park is off Hollow Lane on the right at the far end of the road junction and takes you into a yard with outbuildings. Landmark Trust car park signs will indicate where to park.
