Edward Buckton Lamb

Edward Buckton Lamb

Edward Buckton Lamb (1806-1869) was a British architect who exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1824.

Lamb was labelled a 'Rogue Gothic Revivalist', and for breaking with convention, his designs were roundly criticised, especially by "The Ecclesiologist". He contributed to Loudon's Encyclopaedia (1833), published studies on Gothic Ornament (1830), Ancient Domestic Architecture (1846), and contributed regularly to the Architectural Magazine (1834–8).

Notable buildings he was responsible for include:
*All Saints' Church, Hartlepool
*St Margaret's, Leiston, Suffolk (1853)
*Berkhamsted Town Hall
*Episcopal Church, Dumfries
*Eye Town Hall
*St Mary Magdalene Church, Addiscombe (1868–70)
*Hughenden Manor, alterations for Benjamin Disraeli

*"Etchings of Gothic Ornament" 1830
*"Studies of Ancient Domestic Architecture" 1846
