You could do with visiting our Bernard Rooke file. There is a lot of information there,
Type Rooke in the search box..,

Basically 1960's/70's. Alan Wallwork, Louis Hudson and other potters mentioned in the thread. Basically Bernard Rooke moved from London to Suffolk in the late 60's and started a pottery at Swilland near Ipswich. It became a family enterprise, with his sons working full time. So their production was substantial for a small pottery. So a Rooke pot is made at the pottery, but may well not be by him. The market for this style i dominated by Rooke pots, and their big Lamp bases fetch high prices nowadays. There are always a fair number on Ebay.

As a general rule of thumb, the handmade pieces are early. The moulded pieces are late
