Listed II*, Rookwood House was once the family home of Colonel Sir Edward Stock Hill KCB MP, and is now celebrating its centenary in health service use.

This is a rare opportunity to see inside Rookwood Hospital, which is scheduled for early closure, but much of what remains is in remarkably original condition. There are several rooms, including the chapel, with interesting furniture and paintings.
