Listing: c.1890, by Edward Ould for Theodore Mander. Vernacular
Revival style. Built as part of a planned village for the Wightwick Manor
estate, not completed.
Comment: The photo shows a few of these houses which were built,
ribbon development style, along the road. Whatever "Vernacular Revival" might
mean, it does not alter the fact that these are in Mander's favoured style, Mock
Tudor. Wightwick Manor (the apotheosis of Mock Tudor) lies just above these
buildings; and Castlecroft
Gardens (in a sort of authentic mock Tudor) is not far away.
If you are looking for these buildings in the official list, you will find
them under "Bridgenorth Road". We prefer the more usual "Bridgnorth" (as do the
inhabitants of Bridgnorth).
