Cecil and Maude Baring first took Lutyens to Lambay Island in 1905 and his architectural work was finished in 1911. It remains Lutyens’s most satisfying domestic building in the romantic manner.

Dr. Matthew Jebb, Director of the National Botanic Gardens, looks at the influence of the Arts & Crafts movement that brought about Sir Edwin Lutyens remarkable achievement in remodelling of Lambay Castle on Lambay Island which extended to encompass the buildings within the sweep of its circular circumference wall.

This event will be chaired by David Averill:
