Sir Edwin Lutyens' great-nephew to give talk

The fascinating story of celebrated architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, who designed Victoria Park’s Arch of Remembrance, lodge buildings and ornate wrought iron gates on London Road and at the entrance to Peace Walk, is to be told in the city by his great-nephew.

Martin Lutyens, who is Chairman of The Lutyens Trust, will give a talk entitled “From Country House to Viceroy's House: A journey with Edwin Lutyens” at New Walk Museum from 6pm on Wednesday, June 27.

The talk is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Story of Parks project, in collaboration with the Urban Observatory’s City Series Lectures.
