Listing: 89 Woodland Avenue, Tettenhall Wood.
Currently combined as one dwelling, this property appears to have
originated as two or more cottages that were once located on the
northern side of Tettenhall Wood common. Although much altered in
the 20th century that part of the building lying closest to Woodland
Avenue, which was laid out in the inter-war period, is of local red
sandstone construction and hence a rarity in Wolverhampton.
A sandstone quarry is recorded in Tettenhall Wood in the mid 17th
century and this could indicate an early date for this building. It
is likely to have been a low status building and hence its survival
is all the more important.
A comparison may be made with the stone cutters hovel which was
relocated to the Black Country Museum from a quarry near Bilston.
Further research is required but inclusion on the local list is
recommended on the evidence available.
