Listing: Locally listed in 2004. Two storey terraced housing
with striking roof line, including circular corner tower. Landmark value.
Comment: According to Ron Davies ("Bilston, Bradley and
Ladymoor: a Third Selection, Sutton Publishing, 2003) "Rose Villas in Broad
Street were only saved in the nick of time by the then Bilston Conservative
Association, as being the only remaining domestic Victorian Gothic architecture
left in the town". They were restored in the 1980s.
This seems to be an unusual sponsor of a restoration project. More
details would be interesting. And why "Gothic"? If anything, isn't the
style sort of Victorian Improved Georgian with Scottish Arts and Crafts knobs
on? But, whoever did what, the buildings were certainly worth saving
and they do much to enhance their vicinity.
