History

Detailed History

The 1st edition Ordnance Survey map shows The Rocks as a large estate with ornamental gardens, with a possible stable block and a lodge. The 1961 Ordnance Survey map shows the estate intact, still named The Rocks, but the house had become a school. The Ordnance Survey Explorer map of 1996 shows the Uckfield Bypass cutting through the estate and a housing development built over most of the park. The main house is still a school and there may be some garden left around it. Lake Wood still survives across the A272.
