‘For the Fallen; in memoria‘ (2012)
When: Thursday, 8 March 2012 at 17:30 until Sunday, 25 March 2012 at 12:00
Where: Rosny Barn, Rosney Farm, Ronsy Hill Rd, Rosny.
This photographic collection of images, taken at the site of the abandoned Willow Court & the Royal Derwent Complex in New Norfolk, is an expansion of my previous exhibition ‘If Walls Could Talk…’ (Entrepot, 2007). Since the sites 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. 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.

Hello! Someone in my Facebook group shared this

Do you have any video of that? I’d care to find out some additional information.
It’s hard to find well-informed people about this topic, however, you sound like you know what you’re talking about!
