Lewis William Wyatt (1777—1853) was a British architect, a nephew of both Samuel and James Wyatt of the Wyatt family of architects, who articled with each of his uncles and began practice on his own about 1805.[1]

Lewis Wyatt is known primarily for the English country houses he designed, which include restoring and altering Lyme Park[2] and Heaton Park.[3] Between 1795 and 1800 he partially rebuilt Wythenshawe Hall.[4]
