RNH - St David’s Wing Royal Northern Hospital memorial wall

Plaque: RNH - St David’s Wing

Erection date: /6/1931


St David’s Wing for Private Patients

This building was provided through the generosity of Sir Howell J. Williams, DL, JP, a vice-president of the Royal Northern Hospital, who represented Islington as one of its members on the London County Council for nearly thirty years.
June 1931

Site: Royal Northern Hospital memorial wall (7 memorials)

N7, Manor Gardens, Royal Northern Gardens

In 1997, as a condition of developing the RNH site, Bellway Homes (the developer) was required to create one acre of public open space - this garden which was opened in 2002. Bellway's buildings surround the park on 3 sides.

An information board near the gates to this park tells us that this wall incorporates some of the original decorative masonry, etc. from the Royal Northern Hospital. This includes four decorative rain water hoppers: two dated 1924 and two dated 1930.

Reading left to right, the sequence of these memorials on the wall is:
War memorial, St David's Wing, Casualty, Princess Louise and Hill, NJ. The mosaic is on the terrace in front of the wall.
