Rock Bank House

A fine house for the mill master


home > history > houses > Rock Bank

A Victorian Gothic house built in Clarence Road adjacent to Clarence mill in about 1840 by Martin Swindells I, but he never lived in it - he died in 1843.

During WWI used as a recovery home for injured servicemen.

Today the house and its stable block are divided into appartments and rather incongruesly, and regrettably, known as Carterbench House. The land behind the house, once part of the estate, contains the houses of Rock Bank Rise.
