Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

The New Pear Tree

Cannock Road

Listing: The New Pear Tree, Cannock Road

Comment: A large pub in a simplified Tudor style, in pinky-red brick, on a prominent corner.

The five bay main block has a hipped roof, and a recessed wing at the right hand end has a separate lower wing in front. It has been badly altered, with a poor recent porch and unsympathetic re-roofing.

Its finest feature is its splendid Tudor revival chimneys; tall, massive and particularly well grouped on the right hand end, towards the street corner, where they make an unforgettable impact.

The garden appears to survive at the rear. For its architectural quality it is worth putting on the local list.
