Wolverhampton's Listed Buildings

1a and 1b Wellington Road


Listing: early C19. Included for group value.

Comment:  This building is built on to 1 Wellington Road, a nationally listed building.  But what its relationship was with that house is not known.  Anyway, it has recently been done up and is a nice addition to the streetscape.

There were not always shops here.  Patricia Sheldon tells us that, in the early 20th century, her forebear, William Bowen, who ran a solicitor's practice in Swan Bank, lived here in what was then simply a house.  (He had moved from another Georgian House on the opposite side of the road).
