Rock Hall School
Rock Hall School
I like the sound of Rock School as it conjures images of long haired youths learning to play loud electric guitars or smashing drum kits. The reality is that the building is very old and shows work of many periods dating back at least as far as the 14thC. Its history includes a short period in 1549 when it was the HQ of a Spanish mercenary group under the command of Sir Julian Romero, who were brought in to fight the Scots.
