Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings


Penn Road

Listing:  Milestone near Goldthorn Terrace.  Penn Road was turnpiked in 1761 and milestones were erected shortly afterwards.  This example is stone with a cast iron plaque indicating 1 mile to Wolverhampton and 9 miles to Stourbridge.  Retsored 2004.


Goldthorn Terrace stands well back from the Penn Road (the A449) and the open space in front of it reaches down to the Penn Road.

For many years this milepost was lost in the tangled greenery and was forgotten.

It (and another further down the road) only came to light when road works were being carried out.
