Derivation of name

Can anyone please tell me the derivation of Rock-N-Ore? I visited Hastings this week and was fascinated by this area. I would also like to buy a painting if anyone knows where I can do this. Many thanks. Val

    Rock-a-Nore is an urban area of Hastings, stretching from the Old Town area along Rock-a-Nore Road between the cliffs and the beach (The Stade). Its name was officially adopted in 1859 and derives from a former building "lyinge to the Mayne Rock against the north".
