Listing: The Gunmakers Arms public house, Trysull Road.
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.
