Former Youth Hostel, Rock Hall
Former Youth Hostel, Rock Hall
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.
