Matlock - Rockside Hall from top of Bank Road
Rockside Hall was formerly a hydro and then part of Matlock Teacher Training College. After a few years of lying derelict, the Hall has now been converted into "luxury apartments". It probably isn't so well known that during the Second World War, Rockside Hall was used as an RAF psychiatric hospital, where mentally scarred service personnel (mostly aircrew) were rehabilitated. It was somewhat unkindly known as "Hatters Castle" by locals [source: recalled article in an edition of Airmail, the journal of the RAF Association].
