Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

The Pheasant

Wood End Road

Listing: The Pheasant, Wood End Road.

Comment: A solid design in orange-buff brick, in a Neo-Georgian style going moderne, set diagonally to make the most of its important corner site. Seven bays with sash windows on both floors linked by recessed panels now partly obscured by recent signage. Cornice and hipped roof covered in green tiles.

Where we would expect a classical doorcase, however, there is a solid, stepped up moderne surround. Quarter round projections recessed at both sides. One well placed tall chimney on the right hand side breaks the symmetry. Flanking walls with gate piers topped by urns remain to either side, but the garden has been built on.
