|Comment: So the Tudor beams are thin strips of
wood, stuck on (and now partly falling off). But there is a good
building somewhere in there. This photo of the right return shows the
doorcase and window which are the only external survivors of the
original building and which date it.
This is a building which was once an important one in the
central core of Bilston.
To the right is the street called "The Orchard". It still
contains one printer but in the past has been home to many. Most
of the buildings are now in poor condition or demolished. But it
still retains some atmosphere and there are plans to revamp the street,
if finance can be found. It would be a worthwhile rescue project.
