Rocking Hall Shooting Lodge
Rocking Hall Shooting Lodge
An early example of a shooting house, built in 1758 for the Bolton Abbey Estate. It is a substantial stone-built structure and features separate rooms for the shooters and beaters. It takes its name from a large ‘rocking stone’ that lies between the two buildings. It lies next to an earlier 17th century farmhouse. It is still in use and has been visited by many distinguished guests, including King George V in 1911.
These are the only buildings for miles around, giving the place a very atmospheric isolated feel.
