Rock Bank House

Rock Bank House with Clarence mill chimney behind

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 apartments and rather incongruously, and regrettably, known as Carterbench House. The land behind the house, once part of the estate, contains the houses of Rock Bank Rise.
