The War Poets Collection
The War Poets Collection
A memorial and tribute to Wilfred Owen and the War Poets, recently unveiled at Craiglockhart, which is now part of Edinburgh Napier University, but in the past has been The City Hospital; the Royal Edinburgh Asylum; the City Poorhouse; an Old People's Home; a Hydropathic Institution; and during the First World War, the hospital was used to house officers suffering from the symptoms of shell-shock [now known as PTSD], which is where the 'war poets' Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon met. After the war it was a convent and then a school, and finally part of the then Napier College. Photographed on a very wet day.
