Listing: The Red Lion, Amos Lane.
Comment: An important pub by the architect Twentyman, with its
massive streamlined appearance and large end gables with
round-arched doorways recalling his early churches – a motif which
undoubtedly shows the influence of W. R. Lethaby filtered through
the Birmingham School of Architecture.
It is symmetrically composed, with a telling group of four
chimneys set centrally on the roof ridge.
Despite render and plastic windows, it has tremendous presence at
an important road junction. The rear garden appears to survive but
is heavily fenced off.
