Lucinda Lambton at Henley Literary Festival.

Broadcaster, author and photographer, Lucinda Lambton will, will be telling the stories behind the very British tradition of building castles for animals when she appears at the Henley Literary Festival on 30th September.

Throughout the centuries there have been castles, great and small, for animals as diverse as goats and guinea pigs, deer and dogs, cows and bees, pigs and horses, and even salmon. Lucinda’s latest book, Palaces For Pigs, explores the British fascination with animal architecture and other beastly buildings.
