Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

2 to 12 (even) Clifton Road


Listing:  Row of semi-detached cottages.  No 12 is detached.  Two storey, applied black and white half-timbering to first floor.  Hipped dormers rising through eaves.  Leaded casements.  Plank doors with wrought iron hinges.  Probably 1930s (ground floor sills have tile creasing).

Comment:  Even if you don't like this sort of Arts and Crafts style (probably because you know that really it's Mock Tudor) you have to admit that these are well done in that they seem to be of good quality materials and capture a very cottagey look.  They certainly make a great contribution to the scene from Tettenhall Upper Green and make an interesting contrast with much larger houses, in the same style, almost next door.  Those two houses, at 2 - 4 Stockwell Road, are also locally listed.  Altogether they make a good group.  It would be nice to know a good deal more about this group, especially the architect, client and date.
