Rock Hall, now the premises of a successful junior school of that name. Built on the site of earlier wooden structures, Rock Hall consists of a central oblong tower which dates from the late 15th century. Two smaller towers of a later date are attached to it. A large manor house was added by Colonel John Salkeld in the 17th century. Following a fire in 1752 the Hall was restored by Charles Bosanquet in 1809, the architect being John Dobson.
