Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

The Broadway

Lichfield Road

Listing: The Broadway public house, Lichfield Road.

Comment:  A prominent pub in orange-brown brick with prominent timber gables on a street corner. The timber work has careful detailing, including the small side struts set downwards at an angle in each gable, and arches inside some of the panels. All these features strongly resemble Clark’s other half-timbered pub designs: the Mitre, Stourbridge, and the Raven, Weoley Castle. Massive chimneys, corbelled out well below the tops.

Despite much recent extension and alteration, including an awkward new porch with sloping roof, it still has considerable townscape quality.
