The Gunmakers Arms

Trysull Road

Listing: The Gunmakers Arms public house, Trysull Road.

Comment:  An L-shaped pub in pink-red brick, carefully composed for its corner site, and tied together with stone bands, and stone panels in the gables. The symmetrical main elevation to Trysull Road has two large canted ground floor bays dividing its three doorways.

The side elevation to Church Road is symmetrical in basic form, with two gables, but more loosely composed below. The spare Tudor windows are typical of Butler’s work in this manner, but the doors are more individual, with flat hoods supported on quadrant corbels, and little octagonal windows in stone surrounds above. The original sign bracket survives on the corner.
