Keys to the Past


Lutyens, Sir Edward; Lutyens

Edwin Lutyens was a leading architect of the late 19th and early 20th century. Traditional styles, building methods and materials heavily influenced him. Indeed he built a castle - Castle Drogo in the 1910s AD in imitation of the Medieval period. His work in the northeast included the conversions of four village houses to form Whalton Manor and the restoration of Lindisfarne Castle. Here, he worked in partnership with the garden designer Gertrude Jekyll (pronounced so as to rhyme with treacle), with whom he often collaborated for a small garden to the north of the castle.
