Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

The Hatherton Arms

North Road

Listing: The Hatherton Arms public house, North Road.

Comment:  A dramatic and effective composition on a sharp corner, with a group of three tall Tudor style chimneys on the left hand, Oxley Street elevation balancing a rounded corner with lines of tall windows on both floors. The window detail has similarities to the architect Butler’s more Arts and Crafts Tudor pubs (e.g. the Gunmakers Arms) but the forms here are unique in his work.

Despite external alterations, including a former off-licence shop front intruded on to the North Street side this remains a high quality building.
