Site: Islington War memorial arch (2 memorials)

N7, Manor Gardens

The two plaques refer to the construction of the new Royal Northern Hospital Casualty Department, July - November 1923. The building itself was created as a war memorial, with the list of the fallen inside this surviving arched passageway.

This passageway is all that remains of all the hospital buildings that used to be in this part of Manor Gardens: the Nurses Home, St David's wing and the Casualty Department. Even this structure has not been left alone. We can't find an image of the arch as originally built but the second floor is of a more recent design. The inside of the arch has Islington's war memorial list of names and other memorials for the hospital.
