Under the Microscope- The Willow Court Project (Demolished Wards)

Today on Under the Microscope we are going to look at a segment that teaches you a little bit about some of the Wards that were lost due to demolition which I'm sure most people did not know existed.

A quick look at some of the absolutely beautiful wards that were demolished would bring a tear to most people’s eye such as the old B ward and Clock tower.

The 1960’s was a period of great change at Willow Court most stemmed from the 1963 report by the Cunningham-Dax.
For example the report suggested the rear of the Barracks be demolished immediately, and suggested others follow suit when the patients were accommodated elsewhere.

The report is a must read for anyone interested in Willow Courts History.
