Goddards Study Day 2021
Wednesday, 16 June 2021, 10:30am-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 lecturer Caroline Walker (author of MacDonald Gill: Charting a Life) will discuss Gill’s work as an architect, letterer, mural painter and graphic artist, as well as his connection with other architects of the time and, of course, his work for Sir Edwin Lutyens at Whalton Manor and Lindisfarne to name but two.
After a buffet lunch at Goddards, to be held at 12.15, trustee Paul Waite will present a talk on the work of William Flockhart. Flockhart was the architect of nearby Pasture Wood House (now Beatrice Webb House) which was home to Sir Frederick Mirrielees, who commissioned Goddards.
This will be followed by an excursion to Pasture Wood House (subject to permission), walking the route from Goddards, just as Lutyens must have done.
