Remembered Today:

The War Memorials of Sir Edwin Lutyens OM

The Scorer

Recommended Posts

The Lutyens Trust have just (this month) started an online exhibition commemorating the Great War and featuring the work of Sir Edwin Lutyens OM.

Here is a link to the web site: http://www.lutyenstrustexhibitions1.org.uk/home/4585266153. The first war memorial to be featured is now on display, and it is at Ayscoughfee Gardens, Church Gate, Spalding, Lincolnshire PE11 2RA. Here is one of the images from the web site:


The exhibition was opened yesterday, and will build month by month, ending in November 2018. Over 50 memorials will be highlighted, and it will be possible to navigate from page to page or dip into the current and previous months.

It looks very interesting, and I'll be looking at it!

Thanks for this link. I'm an admirer of all of Lutyens' work, and hadn't heard of the Lutyens Trust!

That's fine .... and neither had I!

I found out about this through the latest CWGC newsletter, which is often a good read.

Pleased that you have discovered this but, to avoid confusion, the photo in The Scorer's post is of the gardens at Tyringham House rather than one of Lutyens's memorials: the Tyringham War memorial will feature in a later post.

It has often occurred to me however that the view in the picture has strong similarities with the view of the entrance pavilions from the top of the tower at the Australian memorial at Villers Bretonneux, which was also by Lutyens.

Ah, thanks for this .... I did wonder whether this was what it should have been, but not being an expert on Lutyens by any means, I wasn't sure!
