Rock Hall


  • Description

    "Taken in June 1980, this photo shows an old manor house, originally 15th Century pele tower set in quiet farmland. It opened as a Youth Hostel in 1949 and closed in 1991. The triangular youth hostel sign can just be seen to the right of the door. Rock Hall then became a school. Update: the school closed in July 2013 and Rock Hall is now a private dwelling." Photo by David Hillas, 1980.
