Exhibition remembers Willow Court

AN exhibition of photographs from New Norfolk’s Willow Court and Royal Derwent complex will open to the public this Friday following an official opening on Thursday night. Titled For the Fallen; in Memoria, the exhibition features the work of photographer Claire Needham.

“This photographic collection of images, taken at the site of the abandoned Willow Court and the Royal Derwent complex in New Norfolk, is an expansion of my previous exhibition If Walls Could Talk… (Entrepot, 2007),” Claire said.

“Since the site’s closure in 2001, the buildings have been vandalised, broken and burnt regularly; subsequently many of the buildings are now demolished. The images in For the Fallen; in Memoria, have captured the passage of time and the wear of years of this immensely significant, yet ignored complex,” she said.

“Once a bustling hub of activity, the RDH is now in varying grades of dilapidation, degradation but little restoration; the very brickwork has become transient and ephemeral.”

The exhibition is open from March 9-25 at the Rosny Barn, Rosny Farm, Rosny Hill Rd, Rosny. The opening hours are 11am-4pm from Tuesday to Friday, and noon-4pm on weekends.
