About This Project

鄧伯裘(1876-1950) 是錦田鄧洪儀一房之第廿六世祖,水尾村鎮銳鋗鄧公祠 (1685) 「茂荊堂」就是為了奉祀鄧洪儀的三名兒子:鄧鎮、鄧銳及鄧鋗而建。鄧伯裘是戰前元朗區內首富,擁有泰祥油廠、觀音山凌雲靜室,他先後成為蒙養學校(1927)、粉嶺農業會董事(1930)、博愛醫院主席(1931)、元朗商會主席(1934)、元朗公立中學(1949)。鄧伯裘府君歸宿於屯門靈穴「靈牛朝北斗」,其後人創建元朗首間戲院「同樂戲院」並曾開辦「好相逢酒家」。

鄧伯裘除了社區發展, 是當年少數通曉英文的本地人,曾經爭取向英國追回於新界抗英六日戰爭中被奪走之泰康圍及吉慶圍鐵圍門。

Imprint

Bustling modem cities and serene walled villages witness the exchange of folk and culture.

Historical relics were pulled down while people try to recover the past. What can be left under the invasion of urbanization?
